As a childhood cancer survivor and the children’s champion of The Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Alliance, I’ve written a poem in aid of International Childhood Cancer day. Sending love and support to all the children and their families, thinking of you always!
Childhood cancer, such a brutal disease.
It shatters lives and it ruins dreams.
No child should ever, have to face something so cruel.
They should be playing games and going to school.
A child should not have to worry about losing their hair.
Why does life have to be so unfair.
Families should not have to fundraise to save their child’s life.
The chance to live shouldn’t come at a price.
Helpless and lost. The cancer has taken its toll.
You cannot change what you can’t control.
We’re gonna hold our heads high and carry on fighting.
We may be hurting, but well never stop smiling.
We won’t let it beat us or tear us apart.
We’re going to carry on loving with all of our hearts.
We’re going to stick together when times get tough.
We’re going to keep our heads held high when things are rough.
We’re going to buckle up and prepare for a bumpy ride.
Because we’ll never stop trying until the day that we die.
One thing I can be sure of is that we WILL find a cure.
And when that day comes well show childhood cancer the door!!
Thinking of all those who have so bravely fought and lost their battle with Neuroblastoma and gained their angel wings. Forever in our thoughts and always in our hearts.
♡In loving Memory
