Today we BLAST Neuroblastoma!

Help us BLAST Neuroblastoma.

Today we are making a concerted effort to raise awareness and money to support the fight in ending deadly childhood cancers like neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a malignant cancerous tumor that develops from nerve tissue and occurs in infants and children. In the US alone, over 650 new cases are discovered each year.

We feel that these types of cancers should be made aware to the general public for the purpose of awareness, detection and hopefully someday- prevention. There are a handful of children that we follow on Twitter that are fighting this disease, @Bradenshope @darlingchuck @TeamMcKenna @Prayers4Taylor , and the reality is that there are hundreds if not thousands more that are also fighting the fight. Recently the mom of @LaylaGrace tweeted about her daughter, up to the day she passed, who was struggling with this disease.

For these children and many more, we must do our part to raise awareness and money to end this torture. Today, we have at least one sponsor willing to donate to the cause. @coachgilliland from Staunton, Virginia agrees to donate $1 for the next 100 followers of @abolishcancer to help BLAST neuroblastoma.

So what are we waiting for, let's use Twitter as a worldwide roadside billboard to promote the awareness and funding to @abolishcancer.

"Power of the People, through Twitter, to @abolishcancer"!
