Child Cancer Poems

Cancer is a terrible disease that doesn't discriminate. You can be 17 waiting to graduate, a father of four kids, or a grandparent when cancer strikes. It can affect anyone. Anyone who has lost someone to cancer, or watched them win the battle, knows that it is a vicious disease with the power to make people question their reasons for living. Because of that, sufferers deserve to have their friends and family close at hand, at all times. Don't let a serious disease like cancer create distance between you and your friend and don't underestimate how much your support can help them.
