September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. According to research cancer still kills more kids over the age of 1 than any other disease. Nearly 16,000 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer this year. The agony of having a child diagnosed with cancer is indescribable. When your child has aches and pains you may be quick to assume that perhaps it's a fever/flu but certainly nothing too serious. After all, they're young and healthy. Well, Sammy's journey has touched many lives as shared by his parents Rabbis Michael and Phyllis Sommer.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
