State Rep. Phil Green has introduced a resolution declaring September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.
Green said approximately 175,000 children age 14 and under are diagnosed with cancer worldwide each year. In the U.S., cancer causes more deaths in children than any other post-infancy disease.

The resolution was adopted by the House with overwhelming support.
