Last weekend I went down to the National Mall in Washington DC to show support for an amazing girl who lives in my Neighborhood along with support for hundreds of other children with cancer. She’s a really good friend to my children and we are very close to the whole family. Childhood cancer is a really tragic disease…there is not enough research, funding and the treatments are antiquated. These are our children!! There must be more awareness, funding and action to help improve treatments and to find cures for our children. Yes, OUR! Maybe today you are unaffected… “thats someone else’s kid…” but you could blink and it could be your child, your friend’s or someone in your family. Take the time to learn more about this horrible disease and make one or two minor changes in your life that could help in the efforts to promote awareness, research and possibly a cure!
One group making strides with awareness is thetruth365 organization. Please visit their site, watch their videos and sign any petition you can get your hands on. Its worth it!
This is a short montage music video of the event. It just captures a few scenes of a truly amazing day. I plan to put together a more in depth video as some of the speeches and displays of absolute courage were truly moving and deserves to be shared.
