My daughter Kim is a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. She posted the following message on FB that I want to share here since so many of us here have kids and/or grandkids, and again reminds me how proud I am of her. “people always seem uncomfortable when i tell them that i take care of pediatric oncology patients for a living, and i know many people don’t like to talk about it or assume that it’s so sad. my job is sad, but it’s also amazing, and eye-opening and intimate in the best possible ways. i love my patients and their families with my whole heart, and feel so lucky to take care of the bravest kids in the world. but the truth is that one kid lost to childhood cancer is one too many, and i’m sadly reminded again this week that we HAVE to do better. today marks the last day of childhood cancer awareness month, but the daily battles against this disease never end for the kids fighting. so please, don’t be afraid to talk about it. do your research, donate if you can, spread the word and hold onto hope. #morethan4 #pediatriccancersucks”
