Declaration of Independence

By the delegates of the Fruia Family

In the Fruia Home

In Sugar Land, TX

On the first day of February 2007

 

I would like to claim independence from the hated disease Cancer task management.

I believe that every kid has the right to feel healthy without the worry of a terrible disease.

A kid needs to be able to look normal and keep their hair on their head and not puff up like a blowfish.

I also declare that a kid should not have to endure scary and sometimes painful procedures that come with the treatment of Cancer.

By Raymie, 2007
