Childhood cancer awareness raised in President Obama’s victory speech

November 6, 2012

Regardless of your political persuasion, we are grateful that President Obama raised awareness of childhood cancer in his Election Speech. Via

“And I saw just the other day, in Mentor, Ohio, where a father told the story of his 8-year-old daughter, whose long battle with leukemia nearly cost their family everything had it not been for health care reform passing just a few months before the insurance company was about to stop paying for her care.

I had an opportunity to not just talk to the father, but meet this incredible daughter of his. And when he spoke to the crowd listening to that father’s story, every parent in that room had tears in their eyes, because we knew that little girl could be our own.

And I know that every American wants her future to be just as bright. That’s who we are. That’s the country I’m so proud to lead as your president.”

What a powerful tool for awareness! Thank you to all who voted in this election. Let’s work together to improve the issues that affect our lives, everyday. #pabloveoneanother
