Manitoba Childhood Cancer Awareness Licence Plates

This petition had 1,566 supporters


When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the entire family is affected. The journey is long, difficult, frightening and sadly the outcome is never certain.

Cancer is the #1 cause of disease related deaths in children 14 years and under. 46% of all childhood cancer cases are diagnosed in the under-fives group. Cancer survival rates in children vary by cancer type. On average, 82% of children survive at least 5 years after diagnosis, yet certain brain cancers like DIPG has a 0% survival rate. In Canada, approximately 80% of children living with cancer are either enrolled in a clinical trial or receiving treatment.

Every journey is very different for every child. Once the journey begins, life will never be the same again for that family. If you have seen a child battle cancer, you will never forget it. These children show strength, dignity, determination and bravery during their fight. These children and their families need our support.

By signing this petition, you are in support of an awareness licence plate for childhood cancer in Manitoba. If you sign this petition and would like a plate, please indicate how many plates you think you will purchase if it is approved (yourself, family members) so we can demonstrate to MPI that these plates are important to have in Manitoba.
