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.
