I need your help Active Rain : Just one moment of your time

After reading this story about Childhood Cancer I wanted to help. The first step I am taking is to re-blog this story and hope it will reach a few more people.

Education and awareness are the first steps to solving many problems as well as finding cures and solutions.

Thank you for taking the time to read this story and for your support.


I'm going to put myself out there and be pretty venerable, but here is goes....

My 12 year old daughter is battling a horrible disease as some of you may all ready know, if you don't, I posted a blog a few months back that you can check out if you want. If not, she has a malignant brain tumor and as her mother, it's a very hard thing to deal with. I can't kiss it and make it better, so I try to do everything that I can to be an advocate for her and many other children that have to go through it.

The purpose of this blog is to help bring awareness to such a horrible disease. I have met some amazing people through this jouney that continue to be helpful and supportive. With the permission of AJ's Dad I am posting the following petition to help bring awareness to Childhood Cancer. All I am asking of you in return is to read the petition and sign it to help us reach the goal! Anyone with an email address can sign it, please take one moment and sign the petition and let them know that I sent you.

This blog is a great resource for me and I'm hoping to tap into the generosity of my fellow bloggers and help bring awareness at the same time. I hope by posting this blog I get signatures for the petition and I also get a real since of camaraderie from my fellow bloggers. Won't you please sign the petition - don't make me beg!


Did you know...

Childhood Cancer is the #1 killer disease of our children, more than from asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and pediatric AIDS combined!

1 in 300 children will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 20!

Each year 3,000 children die and 35-40,000 are in treatment

The National Cancer Institutes federal budget was $4.6 billion - all the 12 major groups of pediatric cancer combined, received less than 3%.

YOUcan help make a difference - won't you please sign the petition

I already signed, but thank you for reblogging this.  I cannot imagine how powerless and horrible this feels.

I've just completed the petition.  It's an easy process & I was happy to do it.  I can only imagine the grief she must feel.  A mother to 2, I can't help but get emotional when I read her story.

Thank you for sharing,

Chris and Yvette ~ Why am I not surprised you both had already singed the petition? Great job and this is something that could effect any of us at any moment as well.
