Good Growth = Good Health
What is this day?
20 September each year, ICOSEP organizations send emails and post messages across the world. This effort is called the International Children’s Growth Awareness educational initiative. All emails and posts contain the same message: (A variety of languages, ethnic groups and designs are available-see link below.)
This message is important because it is a first step to help parents understand the real importance of their child’s growth. Irregular growth (too little or too much) can be nature’s early warning sign of hidden (developing) medical problems.
United, we make more noise and help children. Please Join us and help save a child!
We have artwork in many languages, formats and designs. They are free for those using them on 20 September only for Children’s Growth Awareness Day educational projects. List of links to your many options: click here.
True or False?
Parents who complain that their child is too small, or developing too early or late are simply trying to make “designer” kids.
FALSE. Parents who face real growth problems want their children to be healthy. ICOSEP members are not embracing medical treatments for cosmetic purposes. For our children, there is a true medical need. These medical concerns and the legitimate medical treatments are often overshadowed by the sensationalized abuse of vital medicine such as growth hormone, by high profile celebrity and sports figures or anti-aging enthusiasts. So we take to the net to shout to the world…OUR KIDS DESERVE CARE! IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT HEIGHT-IT IS ABOUT THEIR HEALTH!
How does my one email help?
Our simple message has helped concerned parents find online educational resources and experienced medical professionals….quickly! Serious problems like brain tumors have been identified with enough time to make a life long change for children.
If you were searching for answers for your son or daughter…wouldn’t you hope that someone somewhere would spend 5 minutes once a year—to help? You can be that person who makes a difference. It is that simple and that important! Alone, we cannot possibly make enough noise to get attention…but together….we have hope!
2 Minutes of your one day could save a lifetime for a child!
20 September…send one email to your friends, family and everyone you can. Ask them to forward it. Everything is ready for you to copy, paste, and send! It is simple! You could be the one person- whose email changes a child’s life! You don’t have to be a member of the Foundation to participate-just someone who cares about kids.
