(StatePoint) When it comes to helping children with cancer, amazing new things are possible -- as long as there is funding. And it’s not just doctors and researchers who can make a difference, it can be anyone volunteering at their local hospital, planning fundraisers, or simply just spreading the word – all paving the way for a brighter future for children with cancer.
Luckily, efforts are being made to help by both private businesses and individuals across the country. For example, Aflac has raised and contributed more than $118 million to the cause and is making strides to help increase awareness to encourage others to get involved. Aflac herein means American Family Life Assurance Company of Columbus or New York. Since 2013, the company has donated $2 to The Aflac Foundation for every use of the hashtag #Duckprints across social media, up to $1.5 million per year.
