EXCITING NEWS!!!!

CURE CHILDHOOD CANCER LICENCE PLATES APPROVED

 

We have been campaigning for over two years to Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) to get specialty plates in the province for childhood cancer. Initially rejected in 2018, the campaign has been reborn through a recent push in social media through the childhood cancer community and also several local news outlets.

 

On February 8 we had a call with MPI regarding the Childhood Cancer licence plates. They informed us that they are APPROVING our submission for Childhood Cancer Awareness plates. We are completely shocked they changed their minds but thrilled they did!

 

Manitoba will be the only province in Canada with specialty plates for childhood cancer!

Why are these plates important for us and other childhood cancer families? It represents our children’s fight. It represents support and hope. It promotes awareness. But mostly, it honours our children fighting or who have fought.

 

Thank you to all the parents and families for sending in emails of their families story to the MPI representative. Thank you for everyones support in this drive. We will keep you posted on the process as it unfolds.

 

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

 

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and on October 16, 2016, Manitoba passed Bill 209, The Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Act to recognize this month and all the children who lost their battle, all those that are currently battling and all future warriors.

 

Madox’s Warriors along with other families were present at the Legislative Building to speak for Bill 209. The  Bill was passed, but since that day there has not been much done in the province to support this Bill.

 

So we at Madox’s Warriors have planned a morning awareness campaign outside of the legislative building at Memorial Field in Winnipeg. We will be placing 1000 flags to represent all children fighting all cancers on the memorial field grounds, along with some photos of children who have battled or are battling cancer.

Why August 31? We want to kickoff September with a bang and get some exposure to this important month.

 

Yes children get cancer. Yes children will die from cancer. September is a month we all should recognize.
