FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry has declared September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
In a proclamation at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge, the mayor called for donations to help combat childhood cancer. He was accompanied by the organization “Jada's Journey,” named after Jada Tracey, a 10-year old who died in 2011 from cancer.
