My son was diagnosed with leukemia in 1987 and he has been cancer free since he went into remission. Money was tight and we lived on a very small budget. Some of the charities that helped us were, The Cancer Society, the Leukemia society, the Candlelighters, and the Make A Wish foundation. These charities are a crucial part of cancer patients lives. So, I would like to encourage everyone to give to their favorite charities.
