Kids Living with Cancer

On January 24, 2010 at 8:00 PM ET/PT Nickelodeon will be running a program called "The Face of Courage: Kids Living with Cancer" Take time to watch it if you are able. Tivo, DVR it or what ever you can.

Those of you who follow my blog know Lexie Williams. She is the girl in the lower left of the above picture. Because of the upcoming program, Lexie is getting phone calls. Alice, her Mom, commented on yesterday's Caring Bridge web site:

"Lexie was on the phone this morning before we went as it is almost time for her TV appearance, and the papers are calling- She told the interviewer when he asked her how she managed to live this life that, 'We always try to have fun whenever we can, because we know there will be the sad times, like today'- How did she get to be so brilliant ???"

Lexie was referring to the fact that they were about to attend the funeral of Bridget, another 11 year old girl who just lost her battle with Brain Cancer. You can read more on Alice's Caring Bridge journal.

Let's all do what we can to help spread the word about Cancer in Kids. They really need the research to help get rid of this terrible disease.

  1. Maybe in Lexie's lifetime, eh? We can donate and we can pray for a cure.
