Serina Kindt started this petition to U.S. Governors and

Children only receive 4% funding for cancers. Where all adult cancers get 96%. That is not fair. Children cancers are different and little is known about them because of little research due to funding. There is only 2 medications for treatment that are old and very harsh on children that leave life long devastating effects for the 1 out of 5 children who do manage to survive. 

Unfortunately my niece Ava Rachael Jordan was not one of of the 5 to survive. At barely 10 yrs old she died from a brain tumor after 2 surgeries and harsh and extremely painful treatments. I am starting this petition in memory of her and to hopefully make a change for other children and their families so they don't have to go thru what my niece and family did and to be able to have more hope that their child can have a better chance for survival. 

You can help me make this change possible just by signing this petition. Please take the little bit of time it takes to sign. You could be literally helping save a child's life.
