In support of childhood cancer, last year the Canyon Lake City Council approved Resolution No. 2016-32, declaring Nov. 8 as the official Canyon Lake PJammin Day. On November 8, residents are encouraged to wear their pajamas for the day to bring awareness to the American Childhood Cancer Organization’s PJammin for Kids with Cancer Program.
Why pajamas? Children with cancer often spend months, even years, living in their pajamas at home or in the hospital as they undergo critical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. During this time, they frequently miss school, time with siblings and friends, and other normal childhood activities. Instead, they rely solely on their family and medical team to help them through this difficult time in their lives.
