Bell-ringing ceremony at USA Children’s and Women’s

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – The University of South Alabama Children’s & Women’s Hospital celebrated the completion of cancer treatments for 12 of its pediatric patients on Wednesday afternoon with a bell-ringing ceremony in its new courtyard at 1700 Center Street.

This event also celebrated September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The patients rang the new bell, which was donated by local grandparents in honor of their cancer-survivor grandson.

Several USA Children’s and Women’s staff members took a “pie-in-the-face” for childhood cancer while also raising money for research.
