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.
It is not a strength to be self-sufficient at all times in all circumstances. The people you love are dying to be there for you, and we in turn need to reciprocate that. It's a gift that we can give, and that we owe, to the people who put everything aside just so our lives can be a little more tolerable.
