Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month; a month I’m ashamed to say I didn’t know existed until exactly 3 years ago when Jess was diagnosed.

Despite countless prior GP appointments, Jess’ diagnosis came as a surprise and was incredulously only a month before she passed away. I still can’t quite believe the speed and aggression of the disease. But I owe it to Jess to raise awareness of the speed and cruelness of childhood cancer and to urge everyone to incessantly push for answers if they think something isn’t quite right.

Thanks @gracekelly for raising the profile. I hope sharing Jess’ story helps.
