September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and downtown McMinnville is going gold to draw attention to the struggles facing local children who have been diagnosed with cancer and the need for continued research.Chelsea’s Hope for a Cure asked city officials for permission to place gold bows on the benches and lamp posts to remind people September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Jen White says the idea to place the bows came from Chloe Williamson, who mentioned to her mother, Heather, she would like to see gold bows during September. “Heather posted the idea online and it spurred people to make gold bows,” said White.
