While on spring break, I was lucky enough to attend a philanthropic event with fellow bloggers that holds a special place in my heart. #EndChildhoodCancer is a hashtag that I’m happy to spread in hopes that it will help others.
Hyundai Hope on Wheels is an organization that raises awareness for pediatric cancer.
The messages of the afternoon completely resonated with me. All of the mom’s on the panel trusted their mother’s instinct when they felt that there was something not right with the diagnosis.
I remember how my mom said she knew right away that my baby brother was not well. Instead of being himself, he was just in the crib not moving around and it was mother’s instinct that made her immediately take him to the doctor.
My brother, who was not yet 2, survived Wilms Tumor and is now a father of 2 with one on the way. When I heard that this year will mark 100 million dollars in donations for life-saving research funds from Hyundai Hope on Wheels, I thought how great it will be to hear about more success stories like his.
Thank you to The Moms for spreading the word about Hope on Wheels and #EndChildhoodCancer.
The video below is a recap of the event and what was shared between the moms of survivors and doctors.
