September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Cancer kills more kids than all other childhood diseases combined. Newsweek calls it unprofitable and ignored. The National Cancer Institute directs less than 4% of its budget to childhood cancer research, yet Dr. Eugenie Kleinerman, Head of the division of pediatrics at the Children’s Cancer Hospital at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center says "Curing childhood cancer is the equivalent of curing breast cancer in terms of productive life years saved." In the richest nation on earth, with the highest standard of living, the greatest world power, the country that went to the moon - we as parents have to rely on lemonade stands, cookie sales and parents shaving their heads and running marathons to fund research to stop the #1 killer of our sons and daughter.
Two questions - Did you know it was Childhood Cancer Awareness month and what would you do to make childhood cancer a national priority?
