childhood cancer awareness month
A childhood cancer diagnosis is life-changing on so many levels ― and not just for the child.
In honor of International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we bring you a very special 14-year-old boy, Gabe Sipos, and Gabe's Chemo Duck Program. Born on New Year's Day 2002 in Nashville, Tennessee, Gabe was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma (a soft tissue tumor) in his sinus cavity just one week shy of his first birthday.
In June of 2015, Abby Williams and her husband took their sweet 2-year-old son, Wyatt, to the pediatrician after a minor fall. Although their son wasn't eating or drinking as he normally does, the pediatrician wasn't too concerned. The Williams had no idea their lives would drastically change in 24 short hours.
"It's just a huge, huge milestone, and you don't take it for granted."
Don’t just ask, "Is there anything I can do?" Do something.
