Central Elgin, ON – On Wednesday, September 14th, Elgin County Warden Mary French proclaimed September as Child Cancer Awareness Month within the County of Elgin. Warden French, alongside representatives from Childcan, raised the Child Cancer Awareness flag at the County’s Administration Building to mark the occasion.

By raising this flag, the County hopes to provide awareness about an organization that helps families and children faced with childhood cancer deal with the emotional and financial tolls associated with this disease.

“Elgin County is proud to raise the Child Cancer Awareness flag to demonstrate that we stand with the brave children battling cancer and the families that have not been so fortunate,” said Warden Mary French. “It truly was a privilege to hear the stories shared today and draw attention to such an important topic within our community.”
