2017 Letters to the editor stock

On Christmas, I wish every family battling childhood cancer is able to be as blessed as we have been. Our son is a 10-year survivor, and we know how little research, funding and awareness this important cause receives.

We know how little funding comes from the National Cancer Institute (less than 4 percent of their budget). We know how toxic and difficult treatment and effects of that treatment can be. We know how many families are not given the opportunity to keep their own precious child.

My wish is that a cure is found to bring hope and healing to so many who are walking the journey we once did.

Merry Christmas to all!

Kate Perschon, St. John
