Hot Off the Press

Once again, one of our resident writers has been published! This time, Ivy wrote a post for the St. Baldrick's Foundation blog, reflecting on Georgia's diagnosis and shaving her head for kids fighting cancer. It's as beautiful as she is, inside and out, and we're very proud of her for speaking so eloquently on behalf of other siblings. You can read it HERE, and, of course, donate HERE.

We also want to highly recommend the PBS miniseries that aired this week: Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies. It's based on the excellent book of the same name and is almost a biography of cancer, from its "beginnings" to some of the most recent advancements in treatment, including immunotherapy. This is a bittersweet blog post written by an acquaintance of mine who was interviewed for the film. Cindy is another force of nature in the childhood cancer community, and what she and her family have been able to accomplish with their foundation is nothing short of amazing. We are surrounded by so many who inspire us with their dedication to finding cures and safer, less-toxic treatments for our children, and we're honored to be a part of this army of HOPE.
