SUPERHEROES AGAINST CHILDHOOD CANCER
Integrated Nutrition and Wellness
Superheroes Against Childhood Cancer focuses on nutrition, fitness and full body-wellness during and after cancer treatment. With the support of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, Jacob’s Heart provides families with nutritional counseling, healthy cooking demonstrations, immune-boosting recipes, and fitness tips. This program was created to strengthen children with cancer and their families.
In 1999, Jacob’s Heart led the grassroots efforts to establish the month of September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in the State of California. Kidrageous started as an innovative way to gather signatures for a petition, which was sent to Governor Gray Davis by Bruce McPherson. From a petition started in a parking lot in Santa Cruz, Governor Davis issued an executive order proclaiming September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The proclamation was later confirmed by concurrent resolution of the State Senate. Now, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is celebrated across the country every September, with an annual proclamation by the President.
