So it was like this, I was talking to one of my fans who asked for some book suggestions for her son. She thanked me for the suggestions. She then explained why he wanted the books. He needed something to read while he was in the hospital. Her som was originally diagnosed with Pre-Cursor B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in November of 2005 and underwent chemotherapy for 3.5 years. He is only 8 years old.
Sadly, he is not the first kid to ever have this nor will he be the last.
If any of you have read Anne Rice' Interview with a vampire you should be aware that her daughter died too of leukemia. Many children over the years have been diagnosed with rare cancer, tumors, diseases, and so much more. Yet somehow these brave troopers carry on. They go through all kinds of medical treatments that cannot be described as anything less than necessary torture. They endure these horrible conditions because they all want to live. Sadly, not all children win this battle. I know that there are foundations and everything out there to raise money to find a cure. However, what of the children who have already died? No cure will help them.
What will help them though and their families is the fact that no one forgets how brave they are. Therefore on April 7th I would like you all to wear at least one green thing to symbolize the hope that those children gave. They inspired us all with their courage . Although they maybe gone from this world their memories and their bravery are not.
Here is a facebook event where you can share all kinds of stories. Survivors can describe their struggles. You can post photos of yourself wearing green in their memory. You can also prove that you care which means more than anything else in the world
