Do it for the kids

As part of Children’s Cancer Awareness and Advocacy Day today, my daughter and four of her friends went to Capitol Hill to lobby with Cure Search to raise awareness for children’s cancer. If a bunch of 15-year-olds can try to make a difference, maybe you can too.  This year, more than ever, we need to make certain that Congress continues to invest in research for pediatric cancers so that every child is guaranteed a cure. Please contact your Congressperson or Senator by phone, letter or email to ask for:

  • Increased children’s cancer research funding.
  • Increased incentives to rapidly advance the development of new life saving treatments.
  • Increased support and education for survivors.

Your voice matters. Together, we can beat this disease.


About A Broom of Her Own

Are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life? I swept my life clean of cancer, a cheating husband, and a brain-numbing job. Yikes.
