Featured Adult Survivors
Often childhood cancer awareness campaigns only focus on treatment while kids are kids. But the goal of treatment is reaching adulthood, yet the adult survivors are often left out of the conversation. Here at Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, we are guilty of this as well and want to remedy that.
Since 2015, we have featured kids who are fighting, celebrating or resting. We’d now like to help you share your story and bring your valued voice back into the conversation. Feel free to share the highs and lows of treatment, after effects and the impact childhood cancer has had on your adult life.
We’d love to feature your story, pre, and post-treatment in a supportive community of people who want to bring awareness to childhood cancer and bring a little hope at the end of the tunnel for families, children, and teens still in treatment.

Of all the stats I could put together to measure the “success” of Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, my favorite one is this… Since we opened up our family celebration for Malia’s birthday to the world, we have been honored to feature 28 children and young adults and their families.
Having a featured child meant the world. It was a special way to honor our child and help spread awareness to others that childhood cancer is real and it’s happening far too often. When more become aware, I am hopeful more will want to donate to research and better treatment options. Better treatments that help more children to gain remission and also better treatments that are less toxic to children.A Past Featured Kid’s Family
