Tomorrow, Sunday September 8th, which happens to mark the 2 year anniversary of Elliot's diagnosis, there will be a rally on Parliament Hill in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness.
I would have loved to go, but since that's not possible, I ask you all in the Ottawa region to please stop by and join in supporting the 125 kids presently in treatment for cancer in Ottawa.
There are 10,000 kids with cancer right now in Canada. 1500 kids are diagnosed each year. 25% of them will die.
In Canada, only 3% of cancer funding goes to childhood cancer research.
Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children, more than all other diseases combined.
Please go tomorrow between 6pm and 730pm!! Thanks!!
My grandmother, my mother, my son. Somehow, the cancer dragon skipped over me. Life is a roller coaster adventure, one with ups and downs, twists and turns. Our family is holding on tight for the ride, and somehow, happy. Together we are stronger than cancer.I write more about my cancer experiences at nicolescobie.com et en français au http://mamancancer.wordpress.com/
