Specifically, I'm here in honor of Jay Ryon, an 8 year old boy who is fighting leukemia - and winning! You can follow his progress on Facebook by visiting the Team Jay page. However, the issue of childhood cancer has had an impact on me since I was very young. I've spent a good amount of time in hospitals. As a kid - going in and out for years of evaluations and tests to get to the bottom of a rare digestive disorder - and later, as an adult, working as a therapist in a pediatric outpatient clinic and as a receptionist in the Pediatric ICU. I've seen far too many bald-headed kiddos going through chemo, scared about the next needle stick or major surgery, but ultimately through it all - just trying to be kids.
