That Facebook page that I have told you about asking Oprah to do a show on childhood cancer has grown to over 14,000 “Likes.” What is truly heartbreaking is that people have posted story after story after story of children with cancer. As I read the stories, it touches me deeply to know that many families who have lost a child to cancer have decided to establish foundations to help other children. What a truly amazing feat to be able to turn their horrendous grief into a sparkling gift for some child who is suffering greatly. I love this so much! To know that this feat is even possible makes me believe I can find hope in the darkest of situations.
Now, I have a quiz for you so you can learn how much you know about childhood cancer… and how much you don’t know:)
On this 14th day of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, I ask you to take the time to learn just one thing about childhood cancer. I ask you to go to the Oprah! Please do a show on childhood cancer! site and read about the heroic children and their incredibly supportive families. For today, just learn.
Oh, there is one more thing you can do… please “Like” this Facebook page as well! I know the author personally:)
