Superheroes Unite to Protect the Future of Children Diagnosed with Cancer
By CureSearch for Children's Cancer on March 12, 2018
“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.
Childhood cancer continues to be the #1 disease killer of children, and in the last 20 years, there have only been four cancer treatments specifically developed and approved for children.
On National Superhero Day – April 28 – you can be the ultimate sidekick and help superheroes defeat cancer, once and for all.
