Before our ten year old son was diagnosed with leukemia, I thought childhood cancer was rare. So rare in fact, I never suspected “my son” or someone I know and love would be diagnosed with childhood cancer.
The honest truth is childhood cancer isn’t rare. Babies can be born with cancer. Healthy children with no past medical history are diagnosed with cancer daily. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. To raise awareness, I’m partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and Alex’s Million Mile through their fundraising initiative during the entire month of September. Let’s join together to raise funds to find a cure for pediatric cancer. My son and so many innocent children’s lives are counting on you.
Do you know that despite 700 children affected everyday, pediatric cancer is the least funded area of cancer research? When our son Gunner was diagnosed with leukemia, we had no idea his little body would be filled with chemicals based off of adult cancer treatment methods. Would you want your child to receive chemotherapy and medical treatments designed for adults? Absolutely not! Our children deserve better treatments methods for childhood cancer. The only way to make that happen is through childhood cancer research. Join Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and Alex’s Million Mile to collectively walk, run or ride a million miles and raise $1 million for childhood cancer research.
