Kenya: International Childhood Cancer Day

Kenya is marking the International Children Cancer Day today with hopes to raise awareness. The day is being marked at a time when Kenya is grappling with an upsurge of child related cancers.

Kenyatta hospital has a forum to give information on cancer while the cancer association will this evening hold an art auction at the village market to help support needy children with cancer. The theme of the event is "see cancer through a child's eye".
