Childhood Cancer: Words of Hope Campaign

As you all know, my son , Bronson, was born with Stage 4 cancer and in the first two weeks of his life he underwent chemotherapy and radiation. After beating cancer, and a liver transplant he is now cancer free and a very healthy and active 9 month old baby.

After our experience with him, I think that promoting Childhood Cancer, as well as Organ Donation, is very important! Last night I came across an awesome campaign and I had to share it with you! 

I originally came across it through an article I saw HERE and found out that Childhood Cancer Canada (even if you don't live in Canada please keep reading!) has launched a campaign called:

By going to their website you can submit your own Words of Hope for anyone who has, is, or will go through Childhood Cancer. All of the submitted words of hope will be compiled into a unique piece of art designed by Michael Martchenko who is an illustrator for children's author Robert Munsch (I love his books!) and will be unveiled at a launch in May. 

I added my own words of hope which were, "Love is stronger than Cancer". 

In a perfect world there shouldn't have to be such a campaign for children but, we don't live in a perfect world. So, please contribute your Words of Hope by going HERE and help brighten a families day with your Words of Hope.
