September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. We are very aware of childhood and cancer and I want to help you know the signs. Push your doctor. Never let them send you away without finding a reason behind your child's symptoms. We let a doctor send us away too many times and it almost cost my son his life. God is good all the time and our son is in remission on his way to total healing.
