A child who receives treatment for a brain tumor might need to relearn how to walk or talk, or they might acquire cognitive impairments or learning disabilities. They might have poor hand-eye coordination or behavior problems.
Schreiber therapists see these issues every day. We know the toll that cancer can take on little ones. We say a heartfelt thank you to all those involved with THON through the years, especially the Penn State students past and present, who have helped raise money and awareness in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Because while we’re in a position to help these kids today, we would be thrilled if somebody found a cure for childhood cancers tomorrow.
So, Penn State students, please keep up this fight.
