Why Be Gold?

Cancer—it’s a word no child should have to hear. But every year thousands of kids battle for their lives, and their families navigate an unfamiliar and terrifying new reality.

At UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, our experts fight this heartbreaking disease every day, delivering compassionate care and research breakthroughs.

You can join the fight. This September, let’s turn the world GOLD for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Partner with us to give kids the hope and healing they deserve—and help find a cure.
