The chances of winning a lottery is  1 in 175,000,000- but the chances of a child getting cancer is 1 in 285. If you were a child and diagnosed with cancer, what would you understand? You might kind of “get it” if it was explained in simple terms- or, maybe you might even blame yourself and need your parents to assure you that you didn’t cause the cancer.

You also might be frightened that your parents and siblings might abandon you, or be afraid you might have to spend the rest of your life in a hospital. As a child I was always worried about pain even though the nurses told me that tests would make me better. But in the end, who really understands the word cancer? Life is not a simple straight line, it has many ups and downs– so why has Rachel lost her innocence, hopes, and dreams to right now.

“Children ride tricycles in the hallway of the hospital, not in the park. They know the names of their chemos instead of their classmates. Nurses and doctors are their new family and they think hair is overrated. Their laughter can make a heart melt and their strength will make a grown person cry. If you’ve ever seen a kid fight cancer, it will change your life forever.”

Little four-year-olds shouldn’t have to battle cancer and have to grow up in hospitals. It just shouldn’t happen. Please support Rachel on the links below.

Rachel, who is barely 4, got diagnosed with ALL leukaemia (Acute_lymphoblastic_leukaemia) which is cancer of the white blood cells. It is one thing to be an adult and hear this diagnosis– but imagine if you are the parents of a young child getting this news. The world is so unpredictable and things happen quickly, unexpectedly, and all of a sudden you are not in control of our own existence– or your childs.
