Official Title

Expressing support for designation of September 26, 2014, as "National Pediatric Bone Cancer Awareness Day".

Summary

Expresses support for the designation of National Pediatric Bone Cancer Awareness Day. Commends: (1) children battling bone cancer, and their families and friends, for their courage and perseverance; (2) organizations like the Triumph Over Kid Cancer Foundation that raise awareness and encourage the accurate and early diagnosis of pediatric bone cancer; and (3) the researchers, scientists, and health care providers who are dedicated to treating and finding a cure for pediatric bone cancer.
    I am a high school student at Incarnate Word Academy in Corpus Christi. I am a memeber of the Do That One Thing Council in my school. This organization works closely with Triumph Over Kid Cancer. Our goal in this organiation is to spread awareness of the need for a cure for childhood cancer. A young man, James Ragan, from Corpus Christi, founded this organization to raise funds for medical research on behalf of pediatric cancer patients. Unfortunately, James lost his fight against cancer and I along with many other members of this organization in our high school or asking you, to do this one thing! I want you to encourage the passing of House Resolution 362 we should make the last Friday of September, "Pediatric Bone Cancer Awareness Day". Please help me in helping the next child that is diagnosed with cancer by spreading awareness through this resolution. Thank You!
