Hi everyone! Hope you’re all well!
I wrote and performed this poem, Lines, for the FutSci campaign to treat Aggressive Brain Cancer in Children. Because the treatments available (like chemotherapy) are often too harsh for children’s bodies, there can’t be a one size fits all approach. It can damage them further down the line if the treatment does work.
This is where drug re-purposing comes in. The advantage to re-purposing is that it is faster and cheaper to source as a treatment for a range of conditions. It has been successful for many other treatments, and it could be exactly what children need to thrive.
I was particularly inspired and touched by this video – parents who have experienced this and want to do their part to make sure it doesn’t happen again:

Thank you so much for taking the time to listen/watch/read!
