Yesterday, I told you that only 4% of government cancer research funds go towards childhood cancer research. This video does a great job of explaining why children need to be treated differently than adults. Notice that when it goes into the long term scary side effects, the person is a female with a side ponytail. As I watch this, I think of Til and the long term fears I have for her.
This video is done by St. Baldrick’s Foundation. They are a wonderful group that funds childhood cancer research. They are known for their fundraising through head shaving and we know many mamas who have shaved their heads to raise money for them. Our fundraising focus this month is Alex’s Lemonade Stand for their #journey2amillion but if you are interested in other organizations that are amazing, this is one!
