The Truth 365

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, NOTHINGS going to get's not"

Hey guys. I'm sorry I haven't updated in a while. I want to encourage everyone to watch the Youtube video I'm going to attach to this. It's long, but if you can find the time to watch it, it would mean a lot. It is a short film about pediatric cancer, and how underfunded it is. The US government gives about $5 billion dollars to the National Cancer Institute each year, but only about 4% of that goes to pediatric cancer.... 4%!!! Since 1980, only ONE new drug has been developed for pediatric cancer, so obviously without more funding, we will now make progress anytime soon.

This film shows you every aspect of childhood cancer. From the view of the parents, the patients, the siblings, and the doctors. It doesn't sugar coat anything- this is what is happening inside every hospital, and most of the country isn't even aware that it's going on.

"When your child is diagnosed with cancer, you only have two options: let them die, or let the doctors poison, burn them, and cut them open in hopes of it possibly going away"
