A Child’s Life is Worth More Than Gold

It’s childhood cancer awareness month! Childhood cancer is the number one cause of death by disease in children. Sadly, our government allocates a measly 4% to childhood cancer research. The ACS only donates 1 penny per 2 dollars donated.
-but here’s the truth-:
I get goosebumps when I think about the children I’ve met who are battling cancer. When you gown up and walk into a child’s room that just the day before was playing and now can’t get out of bed, how can you tell me they’re not worth more than 4%?
To my Riley’s army family, to grieving parents, to siblings who have lost their sibling, to children fighting cancer everywhere: I fight for you. This month and every month.
