My friend Jen Weir…. she’s walked this path and is as passionate in sharing truth and knowledge as I am. (Perhaps this is why we get along so well!)
Please…. instill logic into the 2020 equation.
I am reminded of the passages in the Bible…. a splinter versus a plank in one’s eye.
Childhood cancer is the plank being overlooked while the splinter that is the ‘rona is getting all the attention.
Why is that, I wonder? (that’s a rhetorical question of course… I know the answer. Do you? )
I’ve gotten quite a number of folks irritated about my response on the whole not crisis virus.
Don’t get me wrong.
People get it.
Turns out, folks die everyday. The scriptures say “it’s appointed once for man to die”.
One of my m a i n reasons for giving frequent eye rolls is this stat right here.
Childhood cancer. The actual pandemic…
See, exactly 10 years ago my son was diagnosed with an extremely rare cancer for children to get.
What wasn’t rare was that kids get cancer.
Far too often.
We learned that because of lies doctors told us when he was a baby, [email protected] your child, use toxic soaps and lotions, be sure to slather him with sunscreen, etc, that all of these factors contributed to his body creating the cancer.
Never did they recommend diet change.
Never did they recommend remove horrific toxic substances from the home- cleaners, candles, boxed foods…
So you’ll excuse me if I don’t buy into the pandemic BS, when such a tiny percentage of adults are truly struggling. Let alone the negligible amount of kids suffering under a bland virus.
Meanwhile, today- 43 kids will be told they have cancer.
Meanwhile, childhood cancer is the leading cause of death for kids under 20.
There is a much bigger epidemic happening, childhood cancer.
But perhaps you don’t care because childhood cancer hasn’t happened to your kid.
Is that it?
Does something have to affect us personally for us to actually care?
Or , **gasp** do something about it?
