Today is #NationalCancerSurvivorsDay. We can't imagine celebrating our survivors without recognizing the children who have passed away from cancer. Because of these innocent children, their families, and their willingness to participate in clinical trials, many children are surviving today. Unfortunately, many are also still dying. So today, on National Cancer Survivors Day, we ask you to not only celebrate the children who are fortunate to have the precious opportunity to grow up, but also remember the children who have contributed to that opportunity, while their "cures" have come too late. Our thoughts and thanks are with their families today and every day.
As more children are growing up as survivors of childhood cancer, we look to support the ongoing needs of survivors and their caregivers who often manage a lifetime of late-effects and quality of life challenges. No matter the phase of treatment, peer support and community are important tools to navigating life after a pediatric cancer diagnosis. Our mission remains important in survivorship support and care. We are grateful for the families who contribute their experience and knowledge to the ongoing benefit of others traveling a similar path. Together, we are community.
FUND RESEARCH, SUPPORT FAMILIES, ADVOCATE & END CHILDHOOD CANCER.
