The Conquer Childhood Cancer Act has been approved by the House. The bill authorizes $30 million toward childhood cancer research. As soon as the bill was passed, it was renamed the Caroline Pryce Walker Conquer Childhood Cancer Act of 2008. Caroline, the daughter of Representative Deborah Pryce, lost her battle with cancer at the age of 9. AJ's dad sent me a copy of the article for The Dispatch:
"Anything is possible. You can be told that you have a 90-percent chance or a 50-percent chance or a 1-percent chance, but you have to believe, and you have to fight. If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.”"
