Whatcha Gonna Do? Kids Get Cancer Too

15 Months....
It's all it took.
15 months to change my life forever.
15 months to change my friend Jess' life.
Just fifteen months ago, Tuesday was a healthy little toddler just enjoying life with her twin sister, Piper. She was a precocious little girl who tormented her brothers and made them laugh with her silly, infectious giggle and she was the apple of her parents' eyes.
And then she was diagnosed and life changed....
Life was cancer.
Until she was gone....
And now, 15 months later, her parents struggle. Her brothers struggle. Her twin sister struggles.
To get beyond cancer.

They want people to know the truth. About cancer.
Whatcha Gonna Do?

And, I am honored to share their truth...

The truth is...cancer sucks.
It's not pretty. It's not smiles. It's awful.
Plain old awful.

Now, what are you going to do?

WHat can we do? Any tips? This is soooo sad. Losing a sibling is devastating, and I can't even imagine the loss felt of a twin :(
