Governor's Mansion Hangs Gold Ribbons for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Drivers going traveling on South Perry Street in Montgomery may notice ribbons around the Governor's Mansion this month, but they are more than decorations.
First Lady Dianne Bentley announced earlier this week, gold ribbons will displayed on the Governor's Mansion doors through the month of September to honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Mrs. Bentley says these ribbons serve as a reminder for those currently fighting cancer, they celebrate those who have conquered cancer, and remember those who lost their battle with the disease.
According to the American Cancer Society, childhood cancer is the second leading cause of death in children under 15-years old.
