 Hold the ta-tas until October; September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we're wrapping the world in gold ribbons for kids.  As the parent of a child diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 10, and as a voice for all kids, I hope the public will help us make GOLD the new pink (or #GoldTheNewPink for you Tweeters).  Our children deserve to experience the same progress against their disease as women have ever since the world became aware of the pink ribbon message.  And if the #GoldTheNewPink campaign bothers you, GROW UP; that's what kids want to do!

I know the world has been told that the medical community has made great strides against the disease that kills our kids most often, but it's a lie; a great big fat DEADLY LIE!  Can you handle the truth?  Kids are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with cancer today than they were 50 years ago!  Incidence rates (the percentage of people diagnosed) have been increasing for decades!  Death rates have not improved in over 20 years!!  Does that sound like progress?

The fact is nearly 20% of kids diagnosed with cancer will die within 5 years. Almost 75% of CHILDHOOD cANCER 'survivors' develop chronic, severe, life-long health problems.  They are scarred and sterile and without limbs.  They have severely damaged immune systems, learning disabilities and often face emotional difficulties.  Progress?? By who's definition??

It a cancer patient survives 5 years doctors call that a 'cure'.
The average age children are diagnosed with cancer is 6 years old.
DEATH at age 12 is NOT cured!!

One of the biggest problems with CHILDHOOD cANCER 'treatments' is that they were designed for adults, but kids' cancers are often VERY different than the 'same' adult cancer.  And the toxic therapies that adults struggle to survive are killing kids.  The reason?  MONEY!  Our kids are dying, more than anything, because CHILDHOOD cANCER is inexplicably under-funded.

The National Cancer Institute's 2010 budget totaled more than $5 Billion; research focused on CHILDHOOD cANCER received less than 4% of that money.  But it gets worse; nearly 1/3 of that measly total is set aside for childhood Leukemia research leaving barely 2% to help ALL of the other CHILDHOOD cANCERS COMBINED!!  And if Leukemia is the #1 cancer affecting kids (and it is) why are spending more than 4 times as much on adult Leukemia research than we do kids??! ($56,124,322. vs $239,689,242.)

Our kids NEED more funding for CHILDHOOD cANCER research! They deserve safer treatments and better long-term care NOW!
