Each year in the U.S. there are approximately 13,400 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. Four thousand children each year (11 each day) will die. Cancer is the number one killer of children under 20.
These children have chemicals poured into their bodies, they withstand being poked and prodded multiple times a day, they push limits to find their strength and they do it with a smile! They are HEROES fighting cancer.
It is time the world hears about their courage, their fight and their families. The world also needs to be aware of and their lack of treatment options due to the lack of funding and awareness.
In doing this, we're hoping that a light can finally be shone on something that NEEDS to be seen! Making an end to Childhood Cancer a reality!
These heroes need help fighting this disease! They need more awareness, more support and more funding for research. While they are fighting, these kids need a VOICE to speak for them.
