Numbers

That's 46 kids in the picture. All happy, healthy, athletic, having fun, goofing around, innocent. That's the number of kids who will be diagnosed with cancer today.


And tomorrow. And the day after. All through next week. All month. All year. Ad infinitum. Until we stop it.


Look again, totally randomly, 7, black, white, orange, yellow, brown, green, 2 days old, 19 years old, it don’t matter. That’s the number of kids who will die from cancer today.  Now take 3 more, that's the number that will die today after surviving for 5 years.


And tomorrow. And the day after. All through next week. All month. All year. Ad infinitum. Until we stop it.


When you read the stats, when you see the numbers, NEVER EVER forget that those numbers have NAMES...faces full of love, Moms & Dads, brothers & sisters, friends & families, hopes & and dreams.......futures.
