#Leenastrong

As most of you know, I’ve been working with childhood cancer awareness organizations since high school and am part of the impact committee, specifically I am the outreach person, at TAMU’s chapter of With Purpose, which is a childhood cancer awareness organization.

As a member of the committee, my specific job is to inform others about childhood cancer, which was a new sector of the committee that was added this year. I’ve been making a series of presentations from the prominent types of childhood cancer, to treatments, and treatment costs.

At the upcoming final meeting of the semester I’ve chosen to share Leena’s journey. Never before have I followed a journey as open and raw.

You become attached to people you’ve never even met, but my love and prayers go out to these beautiful souls. Sitting here crying in a public space. I can’t imagine what they or their families went through.

Primarily I raise awareness, and I would like to share with you all as well as stress the importance of acknowledging childhood cancer. I would like to encourage you to follow Leenastrong Fighting Neuroblastoma on Facebook. https://m.facebook.com/leenastrong/

This is far from the realm of beauty, fashion, and school. But this is something more important that affects billions of lives. With the little free time that I do have (and most of the time actually don’t but still choose to anyways) I work on childhood cancer awareness, conduct research, and create presentations to do so.

I just wanted to share with you all something that is real and prevalent. Childhood cancer shouldn’t be overlooked.
