Nurse Kevin Rides For Children’s Cancer Research

“Never underestimate an old man on a gravel bike.” – Nurse Kevin

As the world argues the facts and fictions of COVID-19, the American Cancer Society estimates that over 11,000 children in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer in 2020. I venture to say there will be LESS. Less? Why less? Read on…

We’re Riding to Help Fight Childhood Cancer

As the world argues the facts and fictions of COVID-19, the American Cancer Society estimates that over 11,000 children in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer in 2020. I venture to say there will be LESS. Nope, I have no link or fact to share with you to support my theory that fewer children than 11,000 will be diagnosed with cancer this year. It’s a hypothesis of mine. Paradoxically speaking, I DO NOT want to be right. My guess is that many children are actually developing cancers…but…are not being diagnosed. This, in turn, has me doubting that the statistical guess of the American Cancer Society that “1,190 children under the age of 15 are expected to die from cancer in 2020” will not be mirrored in 2021 or in 2022. My guess is that diagnosis will be down in 2020 and during the first parts of 2021 but will begin to rise before the end of this school year. Unfortunately, this may result in a higher-than-expected death rate of these children who were not diagnosed earlier. No, I am not blaming COVID-19; I am blaming the fear of COVID-19 (Nurse Kevin discusses this more in the last article).

When I wrote my last Go See The Nurse article and realized that people are “deferring medical care” during the pandemic, it brought the realization to mind that there will actually be indirect deaths “caused” by COVID-19 that will not be considered a COVID-19 death. And, during this epiphany, the Children’s Cancer Research Fund invited me to join the Great Cycle Challenge and ride “to fight kids’ cancer.” Just so happens…I ride a bicycle.

So, Here’s the Scoop

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer!

Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it. So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children’s Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

I’m not riding for “awareness.” You are school nurses…y’all are well aware of childhood cancers. I am riding for contributions…pure and simple.
