Share Your Photos: Childhood Cancer Awareness on PBS NewsHour
The PBS NewsHour's health unit has been reporting on the progress in cancer research and treatment 40 years after President Richard Nixon signed the National Cancer Act.
On the NewsHour Thursday, health correspondent Betty Ann Bowser will explore some of the astonishing gains made in pediatric cancer since 1971. A second report in the days ahead will focus on promising research developments in other branches of the field.
Before and after the reports air, we want to put faces to this very human story with your help.
You can share your own stories about the way pediatric cancer has touched your life by sending us a photo. The photo can be of anything that tells your story -- person, place or thing.
