Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is an incredibly important time for us. On September 1, we have 30 days to spread the word about Pediatric Cancer. Help us by sharing our posts with your friends on Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc, and follow our experiences on our page this month. We will be taking an in depth look at Pediatric Cancer and how it shapes all of our lives. From parents, grandparents, siblings and friends, cancer has given all of us a shared experience and one that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy, but has definitely shaped who we are today. We hope that you learn something from these courageous kids and young adults, we learn from them every single day. Remember, #campmakesadifferece!

Day 7: Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

“Cancer is an insidious disease. It doesn’t care who you are, who you know, how much money you have (or don’t have) or even that you are a good person. It can occur in anyone of us at any time.” – Brian “Keno” Miller
