"Fight Song" - A Mother's Loss Will Break Your Heart — But It's For A Good Cause
Description
When their infant son got a diagnosis that would later lead to cancer, parents Alissa and Kevin Silva turned to social media for support in the form of a page called Baby Mason Updates. They quickly amassed more than 21,000 likes, and are now above 69,000 thanks to following along with the family's updates on the 6-month-old's health. Sadly, on his first birthday, April 5, 2014, baby Mason passed away from the leukemia.

Another year has come and gone, including the arrival of a new Silva baby girl, but Alissa has not forgotten about her son or his struggle. On Sept 1, which marks the beginning of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Alissa returned to social media, this time with a video that calls attention to the need for more funding for childhood cancer research.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
