every child deserves a @ShotAtLife with the UN Foundation’s blog relay

This post is inspired by Shot@Life, an initiative of the United Nations Foundation that educates, connects and empowers the championing of vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. 

In 2006 I laid on the floor of my bedroom and cried in the unbearable fear of knowing my child had cancer. I sobbed for her body and I wept for my family. I was devastated to hear these words used in association with my baby. I cries for a thousand reasons.

I never cried because my child wouldn’t get medicine.

It took her hair. It made her vomit. It saved her life.

Three years out of chemotherapy, starting third grade, that same child has been blessed by the healing that medicine gave her.

What if I’d cried because I’d know there was no medicine option?

Do you even realize that pneumonia and diarrhea are the two biggest killers of children under five. These two illnesses make up 1/3 of of childhood deaths worldwide.

Why is this your fault? It’s not.

Is it your responsibility? Maybe.

 Can you do something simple to help a child in need? YES!!

For EVERY COMMENT LEFT HERE, $20 WILL BE DONATED TO SHOT@LIFE.

What does that mean?

$20 is is a night at the movies with popcorn. $20 is a novel and cup of coffee at your favorite bookstore.

$20 is what it costs for one child to receive life-saving vaccines: measles, pneumonia, diarrhea and polio; preventable diseases like these take the life of a child every 20 seconds.

You leave a comment = $20 is donated to vaccinate a child

During Shot@Life’s Blogust: Blog Relay for Good, 31 bloggers, one each day in August, are writing about people from our communities who have inspired us. Every comment on this post and the 30 other posts will be matched with a $20 donation (up to a maximum of $200,000). That’s 10,000 comments. And 10,000 children. $20 is what it costs to give one child four life-saving vaccines to help protect them against measles, pneumonia, diarrhea and polio. A child dies every 20 seconds from a vaccine preventable disease. We can help stop this.

I’m supposed to talk about a person who inspired me through comments. It’s impossible to choose just one. The friends and family who have left comments during Peyton’s cancer, then through my strokes and are following the recovery are my lifeline. Their words kept me sane some days.

Some days those words were the only positives I heard. They were the support Peter needed.

Maybe it’s a cheat but it’s true. EVERY COMMENT has been important.

I don’t have a comment-heavy blog but I’m asking readers to stop lurking and give these children the vaccines they so badly need. You can give by leaving your comment and spreading the word.

In this blog relay, I took the baton from Elena Sonnino who posted on Tuesday and I will pass it on to Liz Thompson who will post on Thursday. Both lovely ladies have so much heart for this mission and with their help and your comment we’re going to make that goal.

THANKS!

    everyone needs to do a little sacrifice to be able to help others. by helping them makes us feel more fortunate to be able to share. it’s very sad to hear stories or even witness first hand the situations of some children whose parents cannot provide health care. here in the philippines, somehow, the government provides free vaccine shots in health centers and new born screening tests. i hope in every country, health services should be provided, most especially to the children.

    I can’t imagine a child dying from pneumonia or diarrhea, two things I don’t worry about (and I worry about a lot!). Every child should have the right to medicine. Thank you for sharing your story and blessings to you and your family.

    There is nothing harder than when your child is suffering. To know that we could do one small thing to save the life of a child, is truly miraculous. My heart goes out to all the mothers that don’t have the resources that we take for granted.

    Thank you for sharing your story. As a member of the Down syndrome community, where one thing that comes along with the extra chromosome is extra risk of childhood cancer and pneumonia, it hits too close to home when I hear about children dying of either one.

    I almost lost my daughter to RSV when she was little and my oldest son is incredibly ill right now. Every day I struggle trying to keep my life together and I could feel your pain through the beginning of your post. I so very glad your daughter came through it. Shot @ Life means something to me – it touched my heart when I learned about it in May and I sure it is because I can empathize with mothers who go through losing a child or watching a child be sick because I’m doing it every day. Thank you for supporting a cause I believe in!

  41. Cynthia Samuels August 15, 2012 at 11:10 AM #

    Sometimes I try to imagine the circumstances you describe here – how our sisters on the other side of the world suffer for their kids. It’s unbearable to consider, much less live. I am so grateful for this opportunity to do a little bit at least….. And just by writing something down! Imagine that.

    I am sorry that your daughter and your family had to go through that. I am thankful that you were able to get treatment for her. Today, a family friends daughter is having her No More Chemo Party. As a new mom, my heart breaks every time I hear of a little one being diagnosed with these horrible diseases. From cancer to diarrhea, you are never thankful for access to treatment until you hear of someone without. Thank you for participation in Blogust and allowing us to so easily help another child and their family. When you help one person it has a huge ripple effect!

    Anissa, I am so very glad your beautiful daughter Peyton was saved by the power of modern medicine. Thank you for sharing your story with such passion. As you say, every child deserves access to good doctors and medicine, as do sick adults. Unfortunately the barriers to this are numerous: poverty, ignorance, wars, and unbelievably in a wealthy country like the US, politics and greed. We all need to working hard for change so that everybody around the world, including all Americans, have access to good healthcare. May Peyton enjoy continued good health!

    Beautiful post and my heart hurts for you that you had to go through this. I ( knock on wood) have not gone through this with my own girls but my nephew was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 3. We were all devastated. The strength that his parents showed in the face of the diagnosis inspire me. They are the bravest and strongest people I know, as are you. So happy your baby is doing well now. Thank God for modern medicine. All children deserve a chance at life. Thank you for this post and for helping so many others. XOXO

    Vaccines are vitally important. My kids are prone to febrile seizures. I’ve had the horrible time of seeing my child stop breathing after seizing – twice. We’ve been through 6 seizures in total. Any disease which raises a fever is a danger to my kids.

    I remember the horror I felt when JSL was lying on my bed, his whole body grey and lifeless while my mother-in-law did rescue breaths. I wouldn’t wish half of that horror on my worst enemy. And yet, with the dangers they’ve been through, there are far worse ones that get prevented with a little shot. I’m in favor of anything that helps get more kids vaccinated and thus saves their lives!

    My heart goes out to you, I started to tear up when I read the opening paragraph about your daughter. xoxo I am a believer in vaccines, and I am so happy to be able to help by doing something so simple as leaving a comment!

    Anissa this is stunning…just like you. You are so right–we live in a place where we are so lucky to have the medicine that we need, that our children need. The thought of giving 10,000 more children the opportunity to get what they need in order to have a shot at life is staggering. I am honored to be part of this effort with you my friend. xo

    I can’t even imagine going through something like cancer with my children. Sitting here trying to process how hard that must have been. Can’t do it.

    I’m with you that EVERY comment does matter and this month more than ever it certainly does!

    Glad to be sharing in this awesome initiative with you!

    Anissa, your bravery is stunning.
    Thank you for sharing your story and reminding us we all need to fight for kids.
