Having faith makes life worth living and believing in something passionately will make it happen are words we try to embrace and carry with us daily. We so want to believe in the truism of those words because without hope, we have nothing. If a child is stricken with cancer, the dare to hope can be fleeting when a family faces astronomical medical bills, never-ending appointments and treatments, countless hours on the road traveling back and forth to the hospital, separation from loved ones, sleepless nights and little family time just to name a few.
Did you know that according to U.S. Cancer statistics conducted in 2007 there were more than 80 million children between the ages of 1-19 diagnosed with some form of cancer? Lord only knows what the number is almost 5 years later. Of course, we aren’t aware of those families unless we know of someone personally. Most of them still today are enduring the pain, heartache and strife associated with this life-threatening diagnosis. We can’t help and support them all, I know.
I, however, was touched by the story of such a family and would like to showcase their journey and ask, if you can, give something, however small, to help them during this most difficult journey.
