For National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Hyundai Hope has launched a new public awareness campaign.
The 'Every Handprint Tells a Story' campaign is part of Hyundai's Hope on Wheels, which started 19 years ago. Through Hope on Wheels, over $130 million in grants have been given to researchers to support childhood cancer research.
