Yesterday was my daughter’s half birthday, she would have been three and a half. The thing is I will never have a picture of her at three and a half or four or five or six or seven, and on and on and on 💔 This is real. This is the reality for so many families. This was not something we ever imagined happening to us. It wasn’t in our genetic history. She wasn’t more predisposed to get cancer then other children are. It just happened.
Even though Neuroblastoma is considered to be a “rare” cancer, it is the most common solid tumor cancer in children.
Believe me when I say, it feels far from “rare”.
On average, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer everyday and it is the most common cause of DEATH by disease in children.
