After reading my daughter’s paper about her own hospital stay, it made me think about how important it is to think of other families that may be struggling during this time, especially families that have children with cancer. Because, who doesn’t want to find a cure for pediatric cancer?
Did you know that the average age of a pediatric cancer patient is 6 years old? And that just 4% of government cancer research is dedicated to pediatric cancer? 40,000 children are treated annually nationwide. Sadly, 1 in 8 children do not survive. I would love to see that number change, 1 in 8 is too many lives lost!
