September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. We will never forget the day the Dr said those haunting words, “your child has cancer.” If you’ve never been apart of this community then you’d almost never think about it, we didn’t. We couldn’t believe it, we didn’t know things like this really happen. We saw commercials on TV but never thought they actually happened in real life. Well, it does. Kids get cancer frequently, a new child is diagnosed about once every three minutes.
We are trying to combat this disease with smiles. We know how important it is to keep the family together and as close to their “normal” as possible. To put our own unique touch on raising awareness we will be hosting a FREE and open to the public movie night on September 16 in Trumbull. You can find more information on our Facebook page our our website. We would love for you to join us.
This month we will be sharing some of the photos of the young kids and their families that we have had the honor to have met during or after their battle. You will see how bright their smiles shine.
We will start the month with the inspiration behind LivFree, Lauren. This was her first check up since ending her chemotherapy treatments. She was showing us where they had pricked her finger to draw blood. We saw it as her telling cancer exactly how we all feel about it.#cancerisntwinningoverhere #livfree#pediatriccancer
