This iReport is part of an assignment:
The whole Empire State building choosing to not support pediatric cancer and light up gold for one night even though they light up for things like Canada Day to allowing tweets to determine what color they should light up is beyond offending.
One cancer dad stated the real reason as to why the Empire State Building will not be going gold...and I will be honest the truth hurts.....it is because pediatric cancer does not have enough money.
According to some organizations including the National Cancer Institute our priceless children do have a price and as always pediatric cancer falls very short in the money department.
Is this offensive to every child ever diagnosed with cancer and their families affected by that diagnosis?...Yes.
Do they seem to care we are offended?...No they are just trying to move on and hope it all blows over.
I hope it doesn't.
