No little girl should have to endure this.
This week, an 8-year old will undergo a mastectomy. The rare breast cancer diagnosis for an 8-year old represents a grim reality in the world of breast cancer, which typically strikes women after the age of 40. Breast cancer in children account for less than 1% of breast cancer cases. A mastectomy is being chosen over a lumpectomy due to the child’s lack of breast tissue, which creates complications.
Even though we can’t pinpoint a cause and certainly a sad randomness may exist, it is important to understand that our children, including before they are born, exist in a toxic world. More often than not, children are being born pre-polluted. This has health consequences. Just look at the sheer overwhelming toxins that have taken over our children (here). In adults, toxins have consistently been linked to breast cancer, though without knowing this little girl’s history, it is difficult to surmise that likelihood.
Are we doing enough for our children’s health these days? We clearly are not. Children are constantly exposed to toxins while also eating diets high in processed sugars and chemical additives. Children aren’t taught the value of healthy eating so those same children grow up holding on to rather poor, unhealthy habits which work to tear down their bodies. It is also important to consider that many children’s bodies are laden with pharmaceutical pills for things like “ADHD” and behavioral issues.
I pray that this little girl makes it through alright. This is utterly sad and disturbing to consider what she is about to go through. I hope this is the end of her struggle and that the cancer totally disappears allowing her to lead a happy childhood.
