Blonde...

Childhood cancer killed my 14 year old son AJ on January 5th, 2008.

A Guest Blog: How childhood cancer charities are coming together to take strides toward cures

Hello. I’m Max’s dad, Andy Mikulak.

John Carney's (DE) office as well.  I was very pleased and appreciative of the genuine concern that was shown for our children battling these terrible diseases.  While I certainly don't know…

Greater awareness needed... among the Aware

Attempting to unite the many childhood Cancer foundations with similar, if not the same goals (some dedicated to specific diseases, others focused on quality of life issues or providing comfort rather than research) is a monumental task, and I so appreciate PAC2 for providing an open forum where information can be shared so that our community can become more aware of itself.

 

Awareness about childhood Cancer awareness?  Yes.  It's desperately needed.
