Ellen DeGeneres for Fighting Families
Description
Ellen DeGeneres for Fighting Families
Personal message from me, River’s mom: @[812870625522454:69:Rooting For River AT/RT Warrior]: I did not start this movement (it originated from mama Amanda DenBlayker’s tweet!) but I LOVE IT! I just feel it would be amazing to have an audience filled with the sisterhood that is momcology! Stories shared, massive awareness, money raised for research... features on some amazing kids and mamas?! May I suggest the month of SEPTEMBER?! Come on, Facebook! Tag your people in high places and let’s make this happen!!
#GoGoldonTheEllenShow #theEllenShow
Imma need all fb warriors to like and share to increase the chances of the legend herself hearing about this awesome idea!

This is a great idea.  Us childhood cancer moms (momcologists) have to put our entire life on hold to care for our children.  We put everything we can into making our children survive and everything “us” gets put on hold.  My son was diagnosed with high risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2013 at the age of 4.  He had to do 3 1/2 years of chemotherapy treatment.  A LONG 3 1/2 year fight!  We all still struggle with PTSD.  We struggle every time he gets sick.  He has some lasting long term effects.  He is my hero!  But it’s time us moms get some fun and love!

My daughter is a cancer survivor of just over one year.  Love Ellen and hope she can help families like my own spread the message of awareness of the lack of funding for research for new treatment options for children with cancer!  The need is great.

No one is more deserving than the kids and parents that have fought this horrible disease! My daughter was diagnosed at 18 years old, one week after her high school graduation. While all her friends were beginning their new lives she was beginning the fight of her life. Four months after diagnosis she received a bone marrow transplant and she is now one year in remission. 19 years old and living life to the fullest!

This would be so amazing and such a huge step for the childhood cancer awareness platform. My son was dx with an aggressive form of brain cancer at 10 months old, he relapsed and is currently in year two of the relaspe protocol and is 4 years old, hospital life is the only thing he knows. We watch Ellen every day, to smile and laugh or even just to cry due to the extreme kindness and support that she shares with so many in need. #liamstrong

Let’s show them they will never fight alone, and raise the worlds awareness about just how big this pediatric cancer epidemic is! “It’s not my child” “it won’t happen to us”....well it wasn’t my child and didn’t happen to us, until it was and it did.

My 10 yo continues to fight small bowel cancer and will forever fight due to a genetic cancer predisposition syndrome. He has spent the last 2-1/2 years in and out of hospitals with multiple surgeries & procedures. We know there is no cure, we know there is no escaping - we only hope we stay ahead and make the best of our life with him <3 Watching Ellen has given me a respite during the most difficult of times especially losing our 4 yo daughter earlier this year (also had this condition). We hope this campaign also raises awareness for families like ours <3 #yashswarriorbuddies #cancersucks #gogold #saveourkids

This would be wonderful Ellen. As a mother who has traveled the path of childhood cancer, I have learned no one fights this alone. We get our support from one another. Even though we have not personally meant each other we are connected and we understand what the other is going through. Many times it is the only outlet we know we will not be judged with our questions or feelings. Research has made tremendous strides but so much more needs to be done. My daughters m4 AML diagnosis would have been a death sentence if not for research but research needs to continue to find more cures for childhood cancer. More funding More awareness. Please consider this topic. I am so thankful to be a part of the group. A group no mother wants to have to join but thankful it was there in my darkest days as a mother.

These kids CANNOT fight alone. The world either is oblivious to childhood cancer, or ignoring it because “ it won’t happen to me” let me tell you. That use to be me. I was oblivious and it wasn’t going to be me or anyone I loved. Until it was. July 27,2016. My sweet baby had a grand mal seizure which led to the discovery of his brain cancer, days before his 4th birthday. I had no idea what I was about to see, learn, and fight for.  Hearing the words your child has cancer, is by far the most fearful, gut wrenching devastating moment of every single one of our lives. No matter how hard I begged God to let it be me, it wasn’t me, and there wasn’t anything I could do about it.  My son, Jaxson, has 3 craniotomies, and 30 rounds of radiation to his precious little brain. He had a stroke, a brain bleed, and even lost all control of the left side of his body, leaving him that side permanently weak. But, we’re one of the lucky ones. He’s alive, he’s happy, he’s learning, and he’s the most amazing little blessing. But sadly, we know many who weren’t lucky. Imagine, Ellen. Imagine being able to show the world some insight in what really goes on with these kids. That we’re “saving” them with drugs that can kill them or cause secondary cancers. Damaging their little body’s beyond repair. We need to bring awareness, we need to bring donations, we need a real cure, one that isn’t trying to kill our kids while saving them. Every single family I have met along this journey has become instant family. We bond, we understand, and we fight, for each other. These kids deserve so much more, and these families have faced  a devastation you can’t comprehend unless you’ve lived it,  while watching their babies, their heart and soul, suffer. Fighting for one more day. I pray that you can do this for the childhood cancer world Ellen. You can make a difference. We all can. Awareness- donations. Donations-research. Research-cure. Because no one fights alone. #momcology #cancermom #kidsgetcancertoo #jaxstrong

Yes, this would be wonderful!  Please bring awareness to pediatric cancer, there needs to be more funding and research.  Most treatment & research is geared for adult cancer...our cancer children deserve more studies to treat appropriately.

My beautiful daughter was just diagnosed with stage 4 Medulloblastoma last month & it has changed our life drastically forever. She will have lifetime dibilatating affects in hopes to heal her & keep the cancer from coming back.  Unfortunately there is not enough research to know what exact amount of treatment can cure my sweet girl.  It’s awful we have to choose the hardest treatment just to have no regrets in the future.  No parent should have to venture into this unknown & it truly is unknown because there’s not enough research & awareness.  
We have already had experience with benign brain tumors & chemo treatment with our son just a few months after we adopted both kiddos.  They have totally different unrelated diagnosis now & our daughter’s baseline was completely normal before she had malignant cancer.  All of this has caught us by total surprise!  I’m told brain tumors are rare but we know this subject all too well in our family unfortunately.  It’s been a nightmare no child & family should have to live with.    
Please spread the word & awareness for these kids & their families Ellen!!!
