I fully support Trevor’s Law because through research of clusters, not only can a cure be closer, but preventive efforts can be achieved so that childhood cancer is diminished. Amina has Down Syndrome, and because children with Down Syndrome have a higher risk for Leukemia, this cluster should be thoroughly examined for causation. I am also suspicious about Radon as being a causal factor in my daughter’s Leukemia Diagnosis because our home had Radon in both the air and water – we have since installed mitigation systems. We are so grateful that she is in remission and we pray she remains so, but it was an extremely difficult 2 years of chemotherapy when she was 4 and 5 years old – a time when she should have been swinging on swings and going to school instead of sitting on hospital beds and feeling miserable from the toxic effects of chemotherapy. Today, we are grateful for each cherished day she goes off to school with a big smile. She is in Kindergarten, is taking gymnastics, tap and ballet, and hip hop class – she is reclaiming her childhood! Thank you for your support.
