Face of Courage; Kids Living With Cancer to air on Nickelodeon Sunday January 24-

Cancer. When children hear the word, what do they think? It may be scary, but today, a diagnosis of cancer is not necessarily a death sentence. Nick News with Linda Ellerbee explores the world of kids who are living with cancer on The Face of Courage: Kids Living with Cancer, premiering Sunday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The road these kids travel is not easy; it is pitted with fear, pain and loss. But also it is a road paved with hope, strength, courage and even humor. They have been where no kid should have to go, and they have survived to share their stories – and their courage – with the rest of us.

“All of these kids live as if the cancer were never coming back,” says Ellerbee, an 18-year cancer survivor. “Cancer is a part of my past. That’s a fact. It’s a part of my present because I choose to speak about it, and for the same reason, it will be a part of my future. But it is not who I am. It is not who any of us is.”

Pediatric Cancer Foundation seeks to find cure for children’s cancer-

For those wanting to know more about the fight against children’s cancer, the Pediatric Cancer Foundation’ web site is a good starting place. This non-profit charity raises money for research, state of the art equipment/instruments and parent/patient care for world renowned doctors in the New York area.

The Pediatric Cancer Foundation web site contains useful information for those concerned with childhood cancer and a listing of events aimed at raising awareness and funding for children’s cancer efforts.

The group was founded in 1970 as the Maxwell Leeds Pediatric Tumor Foundation by the parents of a son who fought cancer. From humble beginnings the Foundation grew and now provides funding for New York area children’s cancer hospitals.

For more information see the Pediatric Cancer Foundation web site at http://www.pcfweb.org/about.php

Houston DJ leads strides across Texas to raise awareness and funds to fight children’s cancer-

So many groups large and small are a part of the effort to end childhood cancer. One of the more ambitious goals of the book I love you my Goose is to help bring many of these groups together into a national commitment to stop this child killer. A recent successful effort to raise awareness and funds to fight childhood cancer was made by Houston, Texas radio DJ Kevin Kline when he completed a 13 day, 500 mile ultra marathon across Texas to benefit Texas Children’s Hospital’s cancer center. Kline is the founder of the Snowdrop Foundation which raises money to support the Texas Children’s Cancer. Details about his 500 mile solo marathon can be had at the following links.

Congratulations to Kevin Kline and all those who helped raise funds in this successful endeavor.
