MLB Holds Childhood Cancer Awareness Day
This is an important day on the MLB schedule.
It’s important to understand childhood cancer and how it affects the lives of not only children who are battling cancer, but their family and loved ones as well.
Cancer is a disease that affects everybody involved, and it’s nice that MLB is taking the time to honor children that may be fighting it and stand with them in the midst of their important battle.
Sports can always provide a nice distraction from the struggles people face in life and all of the issues plaguing the world, especially cancer.
It gives those fighting it and their loved ones a chance to take a little break from all of the stress around the situation.
It’s nice to see baseball recognize its important role in society, to be somewhat of a distraction from the real world and take time to show their appreciation for children who have been battling this terrible disease.
It’s a nice way of letting these children know that they stand with them and that they’re not alone in their fight.
