More support and awareness is needed for these children and their families. We spend so much money on political campaigning when there are children we could be saving and families we could be helping. Please help bring awareness to light for these brave children!

I agree,we need more research done, to save lives. My four year old grandson lost the battle with Wilms tuma, cancer of the kidneys. It is so sad that in this day and age there was no cure for him. He also was so strong and a brave little guy.

i dont know if kerry will read this
not john kerry, or other kerry's
that I know. If she does my thoughts are with her and her child.

neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer that causes tumors in the nervous system -- the nervous system is affected by the mind weapons that are used on the people of long island. The lindenhurst boy that fell out the window probably had thoughts implanted in his head. I am not saying they targeted your child, I dont know. But I do know Clinton abuses people and your name is kerry.
She took my health domain, and started finding people with the same names to do things to in NY when she came here.

CLinton is a thief and is being sued for fraud for stealing. SHe had a fundraiser int he white house looking at health sites like mine, and that man is in jail for not giving money to the person he said he was going to give it to.

She (or people that work for her or her husband) have stolen health domains from others and made money telling long islanders life stories in movies.

When she wants to she gives shumer some environmental issue from what health research I did. The TCE problem was known in NJ in the 1990's. Last weeks article might make you think it is something new.

She makes money on medical stocks or helps people make deals that will make money for her or her husband or family members later.

Please give this to the kerry in this article so that she knows when she is in washington she is there because her name is kerry. Clinton is abusive with people names.

ask newsday reporters the truth about the kids that die because their names are william or hillary or a variation of it, or because their name is some connection to a movie that the clintons are making money on.

DONT GO TO THE MOVIES.
They hurt the people on long island.

Soy medico pediatria oncologa en mi pais de origen es dificil para nosotros tener terapias de investigacion por costos, pero yo se ya que soy fellow en ASCO que hay muchas drogas hoy utilizadas en adultos que podrian dar buenos resultados en pacientes pediatricos el problema en general para nosotros son los altisimos costos, pero si paises como Estados Unidos,e Italia por ejemplo realizan estudios podrian ser traspolados a nuestros paciente y nosostros y nuestros pequelos pacientes beneficiarse indirectamente

Hello,

My name is Kathi Clarke. I lost my 14 yr old niece last year due to Burkitts Lymphoma. Since that devastating day I have been involved in a group to promote childhood cancer awareness. I wanted to write you and let you know of our group, and also our petition to raise awareness. There are so many organizations trying to make a difference for the same cause, I feel if we can work together on awareness, we will achieve more. Here is our group link:
http://curechildhoodcancer.ning.com/

Here is a posting on the front page right now....
I welcome you all to PAC2. As members I encourage you to invite others. To blog, join groups, provide info on fundraising events, and provide your ideas and thoughts in the Forum posts. To become a force we must continue to grow, we must continue to add signatures to the petition, we must develop and implement strategies to ensure we are seen and heard.

Yesterdays announcement of the feature of CHOP on the StandUp2Cancer show is a step in the right direction. But we need our own roadblock that forces the American public to take notice. The numbers are simply staggering, yet no one knows. Together we can make a difference. Together we can make it happen.

I am very excited by our membership so far. We have representatives from CureSearch, Make-A-Wish, Curing Childrens Cancer Fund, Team Unite, CureSearch Advocacy network, Stand Up 2 Cancer, medical professionals from Duke, TX Children's. We have parents, grandparents, friends, family members and others who simply care. It is shaping up to be a great mix of talents, life experiences and personalities.

I would ask you all to read the Mission Statement for PAC2. Its my thoughts. It can change some. But my goal is not to be another fundraiser. Not to be another disease specific group. Its to create nationwide awareness. Its to create the Inconvenient Truth moment for Childhood Cancer.

Just like you, I wish we didn't have to be here. But my son told me "we have to play the hand we are dealt Dad".(pre-randy pausch). So, we do what we do. We have chosen to fight.

Over the next week we will be establishing an Advisory Group made up of people from that great mix I just described above. We will start to lay out ideas, suggestions and strategies to make PAC2 a force to reckon with. I know we will be asking each of you your thoughts, ideas, talents and how you can best advance our fight. I know the response will be overwhelming.

Thanks to each and everyone......AJs Dad
(ps - sign and spread the petition, if you don't who will

And our petition link:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/CureChildhoo...

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you for what you do for so many kids/families. Please feel free to share this information with others to help our cause. Please email me if you have any questions.

Thank you.

I agree that we need way more research done.I have a 13 year old daughter that has a sarcoma cancer in her spine she' on her third round of chemo to shrink the big tumor she had,seems like that chemo is really hard on her, I just wish doctors had some better treatments then chemo,
