Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock's version of Katy Perry's "Roar"
This is the response I posted on YouTube: "While I hope for nothing but the best for Harrison and his family, it is idiotic to demean and degrade the struggle and loss of families devastated by childhood cancer!! I lost my son over 5 years ago to neuroblastoma, and have been to
countless funerals for other children since then. DO NOT belittle everything that he went through with a smile on your face! I wouldn't wish cancer on any other person...I have no idea why you would!"
Researchers are using a modified HIV virus to attack and destroy cancer cells
Great new video from our friends at the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
This is a Call to Action for Everyone, to raise their voices to show our elected Decision Makers that we care about the lack of funding being directed towards childhood cancer, and DEMAND that this situation changes...NOW!!!
The James Fund is assisting a young Peterborough researcher in a different approach to killing cancer cells.
For the American Thanksgiving, our friend Sherry Blevins made this Tribute video for those loved ones who will be missed over the holiday.

While both the Canadian Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society do only send a very small portion of the funds raised towards researching the various forms of childhood cancer, there are exceptions. Last year, the Canadian Cancer Society gave a substantial grant for neuroblastoma research at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. The team is led by
Dr. Meredith Irwin, who looked after Darrel while he was at SickKids.
