A statement from the hospital said that each year more than 20 children are diagnosed with cancer at the facility.

The BHC said the objective of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is not only to increase awareness about childhood cancer, but also to educate the public about the disease and the organisations that provide support for children with cancer.

The activities include a church service, which will be held Sunday, September 3, at the St George's Anglican Church downtown Kingston. There will also be educational talks for parents of children with cancer.

Staff members of BHC will participate in an educational session hosted by the SickKids Caribbean Initiative, through the hospital's telemedicine facilities.

BHC said they will also partner with the FLOW Foundation for the second consecutive year to host a treat for the cancer patients on September 29.
