Help Children With Cancer This Holiday Season! #tacklekidscancer @tacklekidscancr #Ad


    The holiday season is in full swing and, during this special time of the year, it is so important to embrace the full meaning of the holidays. While many get caught up in giving and receiving presents, others are treasuring the things that really matter in life like family and loved ones.

    These support systems become especially important for families with children who are battling pediatric cancer. Tackle Kids Cancer provides an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.  It is a way for a child to help another child, and families to help other families.


    Unfortunately, only 4% of government cancer funding directed towards pediatric cancer, and childhood cancer being the number one cause of death by disease in children – funding in all forms is crucial. Those of you who are long-time followers of this blog know that as a Leukemia Survivor, advancing cancer research is very important to me. As a mother, my heart bleeds for these families watching their children fight the battle of a lifetime.

    The pediatric cancer community is small which means that discoveries made by researchers with Tackle Kids Cancer dollars help children throughout the world. Gabriella is one of those children and she was diagnosed with Leukemia when she was in kindergarten. She was treated for high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia with intensive chemotherapy for a year and then maintenance chemotherapy for another 18 months. Chemotherapy can affect balance, coordination and energy levels.


    This holiday season, support Tackle Kids Cancer. Through the donations of generous people like you, they fund pediatric cancer research and innovative patient care programs to help find a cure. Please help to make this holiday brighter for children with cancer and their families.

  1. It is so important to donate to causes such as this. I think some of us forget that there are others battling things like Cancer. With the holidays approaching it’s important to embrace family and loved ones. We donate regularly to different Cancer research funds as well as our local Children’s hospital.

  2. My heart hurts for children battling cancer. Especially during the Christmas Season
    So glad to know about Tackle Kids Cancer – a very worthwhile organization.

  3. Only 4%! Gosh that’s almost nothing. Always amazing to me how the funding gets divided up. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Tackle Kids Cancer sounds like a wonderful organization to donate to. I think we tend to lose sight of those who are in need, that are cherishing life, literally. I applaud your cause!

  10. There is nothing more difficult for a family to deal with than a sick child. It is so great that you are behind such a worthy cause. The government should give more.

  11. In the height of the excitement of the holiday season, we can sometimes forget that some families are having a really difficult time. It is so important to support charities such as this as much as we can, and fight this awful disease.

  12. This is so important! This is what the season is all about, helping out others!
