Mario Cuomo Bridge lit up in gold to recognize Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
The Mario Cuomo Bridge was lit up in gold Tuesday to recognize Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The Pediatric Cancer Foundation hopes that going gold will help send a message to policy makers that pediatric cancer research deserves more funding than it currently receives.
Right now, only 4% of federal funds are going toward pediatric cancer research.
It's a number the foundation believes could decrease because of the ongoing pandemic.
