Survivors

A message of hope as we head into the last week of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month:
There are hundreds of thousands of childhood cancer survivors living in the US today, with 1 in 500 young adults being a childhood cancer survivor.  Childhood cancer survivors live in all walks of life and are all around you.
While more children survive now then they did 40 years ago, many survival rates have stagnated (some have even decreased) in the past 20 years.  While there is hope, we need research, so there are more survivors and less funerals.
