Kind Words Change Lives

Picture from Flicker:
Can you think of a time when someone used their kind words and it turned your whole day around? I am sure many of you are aware of the positive effects this simple act can have. Now we want you to think about what it would be like to have no idea when your last breath could be. Unfortunately, this is the reality of 2000 children in US every single year who are diagnosed with Leukemia. Please read this webpage about Leukemia and what it means for a child to have cancer.

Now, we would like you to listen to this podcast by Dr. Robert K. Stuart. In this podcast he defines Leukemia in depth. After listening to this video, we want you to think about what it would be like to live with this cancer.

The  next two videos are true life stories of people who have survived Leukemia. Their struggles are nearly unbearable to imagine, but their survival is an inspiration for anyone who hears their story.

If you're interested in hearing more stories about kids with cancer, visit this website and read all about their struggle and their new lives! 

Often times we hear that money is the best way to help cancer patients. We say that isn't true. Words of encouragement are just as effective, if not more, to get them through their struggle. Be kind. Change lives. Give your words.
