NYMC Goes Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

The NYMC community gathered to show their support for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and raise money for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation on September 19. “Events like these are extremely important to our cause,” said Mitchell S. Cairo, M.D., center, professor of pediatrics, medicine, pathology, microbiology and immunology, and cell biology and anatomy, and director of the Children and Adolescent Cancer and Blood Diseases Center at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. “There has been tremendous progress in the last three decades and if we pool our energy, we will keep heading in the right direction. Every little action makes a difference.”
