    Hey there,

    Cancer is tough to understand even for the most well educated adults…so for a child, of course it was confusing. It’s great of you to provide hope for others on here.

    Being a survivor is such a difficult road…but it sure does help when you give back to others. Hope you find this website a help to you…

    Have a great day!
