What were you doing at age 10?
I as being a kid: playing with friends, going to fourth grade doing what most other kids do.
What was my little brother doing at age 10? Going to chemo treatments and getting radiation therapy for cancer. Just like tens of thousands of other childhood cancer patients: kids who's childhoods were put on hold, or even stopped.
The average age for diagnosis of childhood cancer is age 10. What do you want your kids to be doing at age 10? Probably not fighting cancer. That is why we need a cure. So that children don't have to give up years of their childhood to fight for their lives
