September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Visitors to Oglethorpe Mall will be welcomed in with a new smiling face of one of Savannah’s warriors.

Local artists Morgan Webb and Alyson Harris, who are both donating their time and talent, have added Toraya Garvin’s image to a mural bringing attention to the fight against childhood cancer.

Last November, the 16-year-old lost her battle with leukemia.

Saturday, September 16, the Toraya Jai Garvin Foundation will host the CURE Childhood Cancer 5K Walk.

On Thursday Gini Lea Ennis and MiQuan Green with Toraya Jai Garvin Foundation spoke to WSAV about the importance of the mural and the walk.
