Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
My daughter, Ashley, was born with Rhabdomyosarcoma and we were told the odds were against her because she was so tiny she could not receive but 50% doses of chemo and too young for radiation. Ashley ha sbeat all the odds that were against her! She is currently 7 years old (FFS)!!! I am founder of Cancer Warriors, merely trying to make a difference in the lives of families battling childhood cancer.
My best to you and your beautiful daughter Ashley.... and welcome to PAC2. We are a community of parents, friends, survivors, medical professionals, childhood cancer organizations (CureSearch, Alex's Lemonade Stand, St. Baldrick's, Make-A-Wish and others) and concerned citizens, all with the same goal - eradicate Childhood Cancer.
My first initiative was the Childhood Cancer Awareness Petition. The Petition was started before Stand Up 2 Cancer, and now has over 16,000 signatures with the objective to have a major TV network produce a show solely on Childhood Cancer. To be childhood cancer's "Inconvenient Truth" moment.
The format is unique. You can have friends, post photos and videos, blog, participate in Forum discussions, start Groups about your interest, chat live with other members, promote fundraisers or join a Group that is focused on your interests in childhood cancer. It's interactive and will continue to evolve.
While all those features are nice, it still takes ACTION. This is truly the reason PAC2 started. Each day or so, we feature ideas for members in the middle section of the home page. This is where you can help by taking action. You can get started with the new member ideas here.
I look forward to your contributions and ideas, and working together in the future. Thanks again for being here, I am sorry you have to be............AJs Dad
