SAVANNAH, Ga. - Aug. 29, 2022 - PRLog -- CURE Flags for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Inspires Longtime Supporter During Difficult Time

(SAVANNAH, Ga.) CURE Childhood Cancer, the only organization providing financial and emotional support to local children and families while raising funds to further critical research specifically for childhood cancer treatments, is launching their CURE Flags campaign to raise funds and awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September. The decorative banners, featuring the gold awareness ribbon and the message "no child fights alone," can be hung on homes and businesses, mailboxes, lawns, gardens and anywhere it can spread a message of hope.

"We have had a great response during the pre-sale period because our neighborhood captains who are helping to promote them have done such an amazing job," said Mandy Garola, Vice President of CURE in South Georgia. "Their enthusiasm is inspiring. Our goal is to sell 4,000 flags this year, and I think we're going to surpass that number."

A sign of the overwhelming support in our local area, the number of our flag sales is almost equal to the Atlanta area, which has a much larger population. At one point in the pre-sale period, 1800 flags were sold in 24 hours.  One reason for these accomplishments is Sheri Neidlinger, one of the neighborhood captains driving sales of CURE Flags. She and her husband Richard have been supporters of CURE Childhood Cancer for nearly a decade. Through their family businesses, they have been corporate sponsors of Catie's Gathering events. Individually, Sheri has hosted tables at the events and worked as a neighborhood captain previously.

In a tragic coincidence, a week before the CURE Flags went on sale, Sheri's grandson was diagnosed with a childhood cancer. Immediately, she felt the love and support CURE offers patients and families as the boy's pediatric oncology treatment program began.

For those who want to support the cause, CURE Flags can be purchased at cureflags.org (http://www.cureflags.org/).

CURE Childhood Cancer is working for a cure by funding research exclusively for childhood cancer and supporting families affected by the disease. Childhood cancers differ from adult cancers in the way they grow and spread, how they are treated, and how they respond to treatment. Every year, more than 17,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with cancer, and incidence rates are increasing every year. Despite cancer being the leading cause of death by disease in children, only six cancer drugs have been developed and approved specifically for children in the last 25 years.
