The holiday season is a time that we think about how we are blessed. We may even be looking for ways to give back.

While I sincerely hope your family is blessed with health and wellness, the reality is, not everyone is so lucky. Even more heartbreaking is that some o those who are struggling with health issues this holiday season are children. 

Tackle Kids Cancer is trying to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer. Did you know that only 4% of government funding is directed toward pediatric cancer while childhood cancer is the number one cause of death by disease in children?

Tackle Kids Cancer funds pediatric cancer research and innovative patient care programs to help find a cure. What is particularly beneficial is that because the pediatric cancer community is small, discoveries made by researchers with Tackle Kids Cancer dollars help children throughout the world.

I was reading some of the patient stories on the Tackle Kids Cancer website and one that really resonated with me was the story of Gabrielle since she is the age of my own son. Gabriella was treated for high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia with intensive chemotherapy for a year and then maintenance chemotherapy for another 18 months. 

There are so many ways to help children who are battling cancer this holiday season. In addition to direct giving, there are also matching options as well as planned giving. 

The holiday season, let us not focus on gift lists and what we will receive. Instead, lets focus on what we can do to help make today, and everyday, brighter for those who are battling cancer. 

Visit the Tackle Kids Cancer website to find out more about what the organization does, as well as find out ways that you can get involved.

Sharing is caring!
