September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

childhoodcancerawarenessmonth

This time of the year is always a busy time for most people. September is the time of the year where most children in my area start the new school year. It is also the month that Autumn begins. But, September is also Childhood Cancer Awareness month. 

I have been running the Cards of Hope program for several years now, and every year I always hope that there is a cure found before the next year, but alas no cure has been found. My heart breaks as I read the statistics on how 46 children every day in the United States will be diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer. I don’t understand how the federal government- can call this rare and only give 4% funding to Childhood Cancer research. Don’t our children deserve a lot more than that? 

Over this month, I plan on blogging lots of Childhood Cancer awareness facts and symptoms of childhood cancer. Please share my site with your family, friends, co workers and etc. to help boost awareness for Childhood Cancer. With more awareness, maybe there is a possibility that we can get more funding than just 4%.
