Max Armstrong talks about the lack of investment in childhood cancer research. (audio)

Sam Clovis had a rough ride from the start. Opponents said Iowan lacked experience to be chief scientist. Yesterday, after he was implicated in the Russian probe, he withdrew his name from consideration.

For a few months now, I’ve been reading the blog of a father whose daughter has cancer. If you let it, cancer can consume absolutely everything, the father writes. If you let it, cancer can completely define your family. It is so important to seek out diversions, he said. The causes of childhood cancer are unknown. The funding for childhood cancer is insufficient. Only 4% of research funding is devoted to childhood cancer research. Hope consider investing in childhood cancer research as you consider your end of year tax donations.
