ALBANY, GA (WALB) – It's a diagnosis no parent wants to hear. Sadly, every day, 50-children are diagnosed with some form of cancer. Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Willie Adams proclaimed September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in Albany. Families and children who have been impacted by cancer attended the ceremony.
Jay's Hope is pushing for more awareness of how the disease affects families. The organization provides emotional, spiritual, and financial support to families as they battle cancer.
You probably remember Ward Wright. He's been battling Neuroblastoma for 18-months. He finishes up his current treatment in a little over two weeks. His family continues to depend on support from others. Mom Maranda Wright said, "Just to have somebody that is there to support the families without any obligations to anything else, research is wonderful, but to have an organization that's just all about the family and helping that family focus totally on care for their child is just amazing."
Cindy Gaskins, founder of Jay's Hope, said, "I would hear these stories of how am I going to keep my lights on? Am I going to have a home to go back home to? I even witnessed a family have their car repossessed in the Ronald McDonald House parking lot."
Jay's Hope was founded by the parents of Jay Gaskins, a little boy who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor when he was two and a half years old. He died in 2006.
