May was a whirlwind of activity, and while many exciting things are happening, I think it is important to keep in mind just how very far we have to go. We are at war with cancer, but we are forgetting one of the most important rules of war: protect your children first. If you think about it, in dangerous situations, we always protect our children first, but that isn’t true of battling cancer. Funding for pediatric cancer research only gets 4% of the NIH budget.
At Dragon Master Foundation, we don’t wait for government funding to do the work that we believe in, but we know that our work could be done so much faster if there was government funding behind it. That’s why this message from Kids v Cancer is so important. Take a moment and give it a read.
