It might be the last day of September by the time you read this (seriously? where did it go?), but it’s not our last chance to promote cancer awareness… and particularly childhood cancer awareness.
Take a minute to see the big picture over at The Boston Globe and visit some of the websites on the right. These angels lost their battles, but their parents dream that other children won’t become angels. Ellie should have been celebrating her 10th birthday today (September 29th) WITH her family on earth. Her life is celebrated and God’s plan is greater than our own, but it is never easy to lose a friend so young. And while I can’t speak from personal experience (and pray I’ll never be able to), it never seems to be easy to lose a child, sibling, nephew, niece, cousin, or grandchild to cancer when they should have years and years ahead.
Join the fight… spread the word.
