46 children are diagnosed each day and 7 children die each day from cancer. Unfortunately even though cancer is the number one killer of kids 15 and under (more than AIDs, asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and congenital anomalies combined) childhood cancer gains little attention. Yet only 4 cents of every $1 the government budgets for cancer research is designated for childhood cancer. Unlike most adult cancers there aren't environmental risk factors for most childhood cancers. Most childhood cancers are caused by random DNA mutations and can not be prevented. In children, by the time the cancer is diagnosed it is already in an advanced stage or has spread to other areas. Those lucky kids who do survive often face physical and neurocognitive disabilities resulting from treatment may prevent them from fully participating in school, social activities and eventually work. Hardly sounds like being cured to me. I hope that this has opened all of your eyes to the seriousness of this problem. Please don’t wait like me until it affects your family personally before getting involved. The “its not my child” mentality is what is keeping childhood cancer from getting the recognition and therefore funding it needs to stop this horrible loss from happening to another family. I continue to fight on in Brayden’s honor for a cure because it is what he would have wanted, for no child to be sick like him.
