September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and a time to celebrate the lives of children battling childhood cancer.
It also is a time to raise awareness about the immense impact of this disease.
Each year in the U.S. there are approximately 13,400 children between birth and 19-years-old who are diagnosed with cancer.
About one in 300 boys and one in 333 girls will develop cancer before their 20th birthday.
Dr. Jerry Finklestein comes on the show to raise awareness and to give us perspective on what a child with cancer goes through.
