Face of Courage; Kids Living With Cancer to air on Nickelodeon Sunday January 24-
12:45 pm est
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.”

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.

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.
