(charities.org) – “Your child has cancer” – it’s the worst news a parent can hear. For some families, this heartbreaking news comes just months after their son’s or daughter’s birth – like in the case of little 2-month old Ava. For others, life is going great for years and then suddenly it’s turned upside down – like in the case of 10-year old Grace.
As devastating as this news is, the 43 children who are diagnosed with cancer each day are true superheroes – and their sidekick family members and friends are incredible supporters. They travel miles to see specialists and endure rounds of chemotherapy, surgery, and other treatments. Despite their positive attitudes and endless treatments, 1 out of 8 children with cancer will not survive.
