Today is the first of September. It’s also the first of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Childhood Cancer is something I never thought I would truly know so much about.
On the 28th of November 2014 I got the most devastating news. My beautiful blue eyed boy had Neuroblastoma. Stage4. High risk. It was so difficult to see Riley getting pumped with chemotherapy, having operations and having the most aggressive treatment they could give a child!
Would you believe that people get told Childhood Cancer is rare? It isn’t. 4000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. That’s 10 children everyday.
I’ll post the sign and the symptoms below so you are aware. Knowing the signs and the symptoms of childhood cancer doesn’t mean you are more likely to have a child get cancer. It just means you are informed!
