When will it be enough?

Waylin Grace, age 2. Stage IV Neuroblastoma.

Nathen Trueblood, age 7. Stage IV Neuroblastoma.

Kirin Brogan, age 4. Stage IV Neuroblastoma.

Dominic Henriquez, age 19. DIPG.

Four boys who lost their fights to cancer in the past 3 days. Four families whose lives and hearts are forever broken.

When will it be enough?

When will people finally see that childhood cancer isn’t “rare”? That it’s real and it’s terrifying and it’s happening to so many children?

Visit the Facebook page of The Sierra Rayn Foundation (https://www.facebook.com/sierraraynfdn?fref=ts). It’s filled with the faces and stories of beautiful, innocent children who are fighting cancer. Their website features pages and pages and pages of children in various stages of their fight. 

Visit the childhood heroes pages on the Alex’s Lemonade Stand website (http://www.alexslemonade.org/newsroom/heroes). Again, you’ll see pages and pages of children with cancer. 

When will it be enough?

When will people REALLY take a stand and give to the organizations that are trying so desperately to fund research for childhood cancer cures?

Did you know that today is World Cancer Day? It’s a day to stand up and honor those who have lost their fights or who are fighting the beast. 

When will we stand up for those children? Today? Tomorrow? Next week?

Waylin, Nathen, Kirin and Dominic sadly have joined the ever-growing list of children killed by cancer. 

When will it be enough?
