Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  If you are a regular reader of my blog (even if I'm not a regular writer), you are already aware of childhood cancer.  But perhaps you didn't know that cancer is the Number 1 disease killer of children.  The only more frequent cause of death in childhood is trauma.  Or perhaps you didn't know that 10,400 children will be diagnosed with cancer this year in the US, but that many women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every 2 weeks.  This might be why a paltry 4% of the National Cancer Institute's annual budget goes to pediatric cancer research.

So now you're aware.

But here's a more important thing to be aware of:  pediatric cancer is weak; although it can kill the body, it can't kill the spirit of childhood.  Don't believe me?  Check out the spirit of the kids I take care of every day.
