Mario Cuomo Bridge Lighting in Honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! - Sound Shore Moms of Westchester


“914”…not just an area code, but a date to remember forever!  On the evening of September 14th, in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, The Mario Cuomo Bridge will light up the night in GOLD.

Pediatric Cancer Foundation wants the world to recognize children around the globe who suffer with cancer and, most importantly, to acknowledge the work that is being done to eradicate this dreadful disease.

For over 50 years, Pediatric Cancer Foundation has been on the front lines in the fight against childhood cancer. This bridge-lighting sends a message to policy makers that 4% of federal funds for pediatric cancer research is not nearly enough…especially when researchers fear Covid may threaten to decrease that number.

Pediatric Cancer Foundation President, Pamela Strauss Peligri, embraces this event: “For me, this bridge-lighting symbolizes a light of hope that PCF carries, to embrace a future without pediatric cancer. We are deeply appreciative of Shelley Mayer and her team for creating this promise of hope in “914” on 9-14, a date we will always remember.”
