Hi everyone, today I wanted to talk about something very important. As many of you know, last month was September, and September is childhood cancer month. It is a very emotional month and I think more people should be aware of what people advocate about childhood cancer.
I follow a family on Instagram, who lost their four-year-old daughter named Ellie and it was very heartbreaking watching their story over Instagram. I don’t know them personally, but I can tell they are a very strong family and that Ellie had a very strong and sweet spirit.
Sadly, childhood cancer only gets 4% of funding from cancer research. I wonder why childhood cancer only gets 4% funding when it is the most common death by disease for Canadian children. I am not just advocating for Canadian children, but children all over the world who have been victims of this horrible disease.
My heart truly aches for these children and their families, I don’t think anyone could truly imagine the pain of these children and their loved ones, God forbid. Some of these families have a hard time financially being able to finance cancer treatments, not only that but they have to take time off work to take care of their child. That is why I encourage everyone to do research on cancer and be aware of what is going on, I know one day we can and will find a cure for this horrible ugly disease that is affecting adults and children alike.
One very important topic I wanted to talk about in my article, is this little boy named Preston. He is a little boy with cancer, and his family is asking for financial help with bills. I think they would ever so appreciate it everyone could give as much as they could to help. Please go to this link to donate: www.teamlillyfoundation.org/for-preston/
You guys, it would mean the world to me if you could donate to help Preston and his family. There are so many families that need our help. This disease is real and it is affecting individuals and families all over the world, people think they can turn a blind eye to it but cancer is evil.
Thank you, everyone.
