Whether they were an actor, musician, politician, scientist, athlete, civil rights activist, media personality or some other high profile person, the worlds heart goes out to them and they are eulogized with the words “Gone too soon”
I often wonder; if these innocent children who are being taken away by this deadly canker, had been given a better chance to have beaten cancer, what kind of life would they have lived? What impact would they have had on this world?
Each day another seven young lives are snuffed out simply because our government chooses not to make childhood cancer a national priority. How many world leaders, future peace makers, ground breaking scientists, entertainers, Olympic athletes are we losing to childhood cancer every day?
Because our governments refuses to prioritize childhood cancer to a greater heights, each day we lose another seven young lives, another seven chances for the world to be a better place.
So this is how bad we are doing as a nation when our children are dying because of weak health care system, coupled with lack of commitment to support childhood cancer and can’t even factor childhood cancer medication or treatment on the NHIS.
