12-year-old Collin has a brain tumor. Third one in his short life. We met today during a Facebook live video tour of @LevineChuldrens cancer clinic. (See my phone? Little less intimidating than a big TV camera.) Collin was great. So was his mom, the other kids, their families, Dr. O and the entire staff that let me put them on the spot.

Every September I put out 30 posts for #PediatricCancerAwareness Month. One a day. All different. This is today's: A tour of an area no live camera has ever been invited before, a chance to ask medical experts about the likelihood of a Cure and the opportunity to meet Collin and other amazing kids, all who made me want to go home and hug mine.
I'm excited - really, truly - for you guys to see what's coming the next 29 days. So many awesome kids. So many big ideas on helping them. Check Facebook every morning.
Thank you Collin for sharing your reality - hope your school understands you had to get an infusion so that's why you weren't in 7th grade today - and big thanks for humoring my cell phone Facebook broadcast. (But hey, it worked!)
