So many people think it won’t happen to them. I thought that too. Honestly I knew nothing about Childhood Cancer. Riley was healthy, it wasn’t going to happen to me. Riley was never poorly before having cancer. He was still a baby. He didn’t really get a cold. Most Toddlers have always got a cold, Riley didn’t.
He still got cancer though.
I got told Childhood Cancer is rare. Bullshit. It happens. Day in day out. 400 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK a year that’s 10 everyday.
Nothing about cancer is pretty! Chemotherapy kills the cancer but it’s still bloody awful! Have you ever seen an adult in chemotherapy? Think of what that’s like to see your own child having it.
Cancer is pretty much like lottery and next time, it could be you!
