People Give to People, Not Causes

You don't care about childhood cancer.

That's right. I said it. You. Don't. Care.

You care about your friends, your family, maybe even your dog.

But you don't care about cancer.

If we've learned anything this year, it's that people give to people, not causes.

It's also why we decided to debut the …

We No Longer Can Stand Together

Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act is a Trojan Horse, rushed to a vote by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in December 2013 without any debate at the committee level. The most thorough Congressional record of questioning was only a "Dear Colleague Letter," in which the…

I am a student who created a children's book for children with cancer & need help finding just one parent to read and review!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Natasha and I am a graduate student studying to become a psychologist. I have a very close friend who was diagnosed with cancer in her 20's, a grandmother that passed away from cancer, and another friend who was diagnosed in his early 20's with a brain tumor and ever since I have wanted to do something to help!

SO, for my doctoral dissertation, I am conducting a study designed to explore the potential use of a mindfulness based activity…

My daughter inspired a new program to find new cures for childhood brain cancer

My daughter, Anjuli Jacobs, died in 2001 of the most deadly cancer of all - brain stem cancer, otherwise known as a pontine glioma. We donated the tumor to researchers at Seattle Children's Hospital/the Fred Hutcheson Cancer Research Center/the UW Medical Center. It was the FIRST time a pontine glioma was ever donated. It inspired one of the world's most reknown researchers, Dr. James Olson, to turn to brand new ways to find cures and save lives! Read this -…

I wouldn't gamble with my life on odds of 1 in 5

1 in 5. That's how many kids won't survive their cancer diagnosis within the first 5 years. 1 in 3 children diagnosed without cancer will not live-out a normal life span, many of them dying before 30. And for those that do survive, life is never normal. Approximately 2/3rds of survivors face life-long side effects. Not to mention the emotional impact it is guaranteed to have on the whole family. Some people say that everyone is aware, but just not acting. I beg to differ. Tomorrow I'm due to…

100 million men

You were lying in my arms,

As I tried to say goodbye,

I'm relieved your pain is gone,

I told myself I'd make it through

But I knew that was a lie.

I gazed at your little handprint,

Given to us that day,

You wouldnt feel pain again,

But I wanted you to stay.

You fought for every breath you took,

Never letting go,

Until one day God made you His,

Leaving all of us below.

You could no longer walk or…

I miss you so much buddy. I'm so devestated that i'll have to live the rest of my life without you.

I REFUSE TO GIVE UP!!

I made my son who passed away last year of a childhood cancer @ the age of 21 a PROMISE that I would make a DIFFERENCE with this HORIBLE disease he endured for almost 2 years. SPC.MICHAEL LEVRIER was my son and my HERO. A soldier in the Army in the Aviation division since he was 17 years old. BRAVEST MAN I'VE EVER KNOWN! I made a difference at the RELAY for LIFE and plan on doing the same for CHILDHOOD CANCER!  NEVER FORGOTTEN SON EVER!!! <3

Love Mommy
