St. Clair County families who have been affected by Wilms Tumor, a childhood cancer, are promoting an awareness campaign for “September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.” Parents and grandparents of the children who have suffered this disease will host the movie, “Beloved Community” at 5 branches of the St. Clair County Library System, in Michigan. The documentary is about what locals call, “Chemical Valley” located near Sarnia, Ontario and the Aamjwnaang People who live in the middle of it. The focus of the one-hour film is how the petrochemical industry there has affected their environment and community health. Family members will be available after the film to answer questions about Wilms Tumor, what signs and symptoms to look for in your children and their belief that our environment may be linked to this cancer. For more information, call Marie at 810.765.5069.
