GO FOR THE GOLD – CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

FRIENDS

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SEPTEMBER IS CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. 

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT CHILDHOOD CANCER SURVIVORS BECOME ADOLESCENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS WITH SECONDARY ILLNESSES 

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT EACH DAY PARENTS ARE MOURNING THE LOSS OF THEIR CHILD AS A RESULT OF CANCER.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT PEDIATRIC CANCER IS THE #1 DISEASE RELATED KILLER OF KIDS IN THE UNITED STATES.

KNOW THAT THE NIH (NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH – WHERE YOUR TAX DOLLARS GO) GETS $30 BILLION FOR RESEARCH ANNUALLY, YET CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH GETS LESS THAN $200 MILLION. THE DEADLIEST CHILDHOOD CANCERS GET LITTLE OR NO FUNDING.

IT’S NOT A MATTER OF MORE MONEY, IT’S A MATTER OF PRIORITIES.ribbon

 

 

 

 

WE MUST MAKE CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH A NATIONAL PRIORITY AND GIVE KIDS PEDIATRIC CURES, TREATMENTS, PROTOCOLS AND HOPE!!!

fight! conquer! CURE!!!
