Dunkin Shines Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Event A Sweet Success for St. Joe’s

According to the American Cancer Society, about 10,500 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2021 – and childhood cancer rates have been rising slightly for the past few decades. The good news is because of advancements in treatment, 84% of children with cancer now survive 5 years or more.

Events like Dunkin’ Shines Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness are a big part of the reason why.

During the first two weeks of July, every Joy Donut purchased at a participating Dunkin’ restaurant in the Tampa benefited St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital as part of the Dunkin’ Shines Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness event, one of the many initiatives of Dunkin’s Joy in Childhood Foundation.

Highly regarded throughout the southeast United States as a leader in pediatric cancer care, St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital was grateful to be part of this important program, which not only made some taste buds happy but will also make a real difference to the hundreds of children in our community who are battling this terrible disease. Now that’s what we call a sweet success.
