This story is so amazing I just had to share it again. Please take time to read it!
 
What an amazing little girl! Since being diagnosed with pediatric cancer in mid-November of last year, the little girl has raised $275,000 for the Make A Wish Foundation, founded the Smashing Walnuts campaign to raise awareness for pediatric brain cancer, co-authored a book and, finally, graduated college. Congratulations Gabriella! We wish you the very best. #childhoodcancer

Art therapy is such a great thing for children that are so sick!  #childhoodcancer  
 
Supporting the tools to extend Art Therapy (as funded by the Me Fine Foundation) into the Digital world and resources that allow Arts Programming to expand from the clinic into the in-patient area, is another way Striving For More is supporting children with cancer. #childhoodcancer

Here are some awful stats about #childhoodcancer  
 
A typical treatment plan for a child with ALL results in:  231 missed days of school; 1,652 antibiotic pills to prevent infections; 2,504 chemotherapy pills; 115 finger pokes...  #childhoodcancerawarenessmonth  
In 2013, more than 11,000 children under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer, and hundreds will die of the disease. Although survival rates for many childhood cancers have improved dramatically over the past few decades, cancer is still the leading cause of death by disease in children.

So many children and families are affected by #childhoodcancer
 
Did you know that on the average, 36 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer everyday in the United States?  http://www.striving4more.org/  #childhoodcancerawarenessmonth

Story
Tagline
Offering children with cancer and their families emotional and spiritual support.
Introduction

Striving For More, Inc. is a nonprofit, charitable organization whose purpose is to raise awareness of the importance of psychosocial care for children battling cancer and to provide funding to hospitals so they can implement emotional and spiritual support services to better serve the needs of these children.

There are many ways that Striving For More serves the Community

Many excellent physicians are working on research to find cures for cancer. However, these priorities frequently result in a lack of funding for proper psychosocial care. Striving for More seeks to obtains funds from corporate sponsors, charitable organizations, community involvement and fund raising events.

“The failure to address the very real psychosocial health needs of patients and their caregivers is a failure to effectively treat that patient’s cancer, plain and simple.” according to an October 2007 Institute of Medicine report brief(Cancer Care for the Whole Patient: Meeting Psychosocial Health Needs)

Proper psychological care for our children should be a health care standard, not a luxury.  That is the mission and passion of Striving For More
