After a long day of taking care of her children, the last thing many moms may choose to do is sit down and watch a show about pediatric cancer patients. But if it's anything like the upcoming Nickelodeon special, The Face of Courage: Kids Living with Cancer (premiering Sunday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m.) she might change her mind. Though shows about ailing children are not typically at the top of a parent's must-watch list, this spot might be worth tuning in for. It features cancer survivor Linda Ellerbee and seven real children telling their heroic stories of battling cancer from a firsthand perspective. Courageous, cute, funny, and brave youngsters, they share their war stories along with their dreams and expectations. So while the subject of childhood cancer is dreadful, hopefully through their experiences, these lil warriors will bring hope and a smile to many viewers, especially families in the same predicament.
I'll admit the St. Jude's commercials get me choked up, so I'm pretty sure my tissue box won't stand a chance when this hits my tellie. Will you tune in for The Face of Courage: Kids Living With Cancer?
