Read BLEED, support fight against children’s cancer

Support the National Children's Cancer Society with BLEED.

Support the National Children’s Cancer Society with BLEED.

You might not know it, but September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It’s an easy thing to overlook-if you’re not affected by it, but if you are, well, let’s just say it isn’t an easy thing to forget.

Every year, doctors diagnose over 15,000 kids with cancer, and that’s in the United States alone. Imagine being one of 15,000 families with a child suffering from cancer. One is too many, but 15,000?

Some won’t survive, and even the ones that do face staggering medical bills and lifestyle changes that few can afford. When you support a charity like the National Children’s Cancer Society, you aren’t just helping to find a cure–you’re helping a family in need, right now.

You can support the National Children’s Cancer Society by clicking here and donating, or if you’re a horror fan, you can pick up a copy of BLEED (Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing), edited by Lori Michelle, and enjoy the following chilling stories, poems, and essays:

Proceeds from each sale go directly to the NCCS, so pick it up in paperback, snag a copy for your Kindle, or don’t … and just donate.

It doesn’t even have to be to the National Children’s Cancer Society. It can be the American Cancer Society, or St. Jude Children’s Hospital, or the Children’s Cancer Association. Whatevs.

When the monster is cancer, we should always remember to keep it in the crosshairs, whether it’s September or not.
