February 15 is International Children’s Cancer Day.
International Childhood Cancer Day is a global collaborative campaign to raise awareness about childhood cancer, and to express support for children and adolescents with cancer, the survivors and their families.
In September of last year, Bushu Pharma held a lecture on childhood cancer, “The Patient’s Family’s Thoughts and Drugs” @ Hiroko Kondo (Meeting for the Protection of Children with Cancer – Vice Chairman). Has raised donation by person.
Following last year’s lectures, donation, and painting exhibitions, in this campaign, Bushu Pharma decided to cooperate with companies and union.
International Children’s Cancer Day was founded in 2002 by the International Children’s Cancer Society CCI (Childhood Cancer International), which is comprised of 171 parental associations from 88 countries.
The global campaign is designed to raise awareness and develop support for childhood cancer.
In Japan, the Public Interest Incorporated Foundation “Protecting Children with Cancer” is the main sponsor, and campaigns are being held in various locations with the support of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
