Times are changing. These kids are fighting harder and longer. Their stories are getting out there because the chemo drugs are not curing kids, but they are extending their lives. People ARE aware of them. Awareness of pediatric cancer is out there. But now we are getting stalled because the movement is not moving.
I've criticized St. Jude in the past, for failing to draw attention to those childhood cancers with prognoses that have remained unchanged for decades. But our family participates in its marathons and walks and will continue to do so. However, something's up with its latest campaign to get its repeat donors to dig deep.
