What Science Says About Childhood Cancer
We are in September now. This is the time of changing seasons towards cooler temperature. It is the beginning of the fall season where students start school or head back to their school. I created this blog in honor of increasing awareness for kids who become the victim of cancer. According to many research studies, cancer is the number one deadliest disease for children over the age of one.

There are new findings shared by scientists who emphasize the importance of children receiving vaccines. Apparently, it can prevent kids from several different cancers. It is as simple as being aware of the importance of children getting HPV Vaccination. And, to make it easier for kids in smaller towns to get the injection. Another awareness that is worthy to raise is that many smaller cities don't have access to treatment for their children with cancer.

Every Support Helps and Counts
When it comes to supporting children with cancer, every little help can go a long way. In particular, together we can help children in smaller cities to gain easier access to hospital care and treatment. Bringing awareness does not necessarily mean that we have to have had someone suffer this deadly disease. It means that we are all one and together we can help save children who deserve to live a full and healthy life. 

Perhaps, we can all hold back on that T-Shirt that we don't need. If we knew we could save a child's life, would we still consider throwing our money away on material things? In particular, on things that we know we wouldn't be using. Let's all start caring for one another by taking more action. Imagine that we don't buy that bag or we don't order dessert with our food. Instead, we use money wisely and don't throw it away. We help make a difference and save innocent children's lives. Imagine, how many of us that would add up to? How many lives would be saved? As emphasized in this article, smaller cities desperately need your support. Please don't forget to help and spread the word.

Should I Purchase a Digital Copy or a Physical Copy of a Book?

The world is changing with technology. E-book and digital books are making it convenient for book lovers to instantly download and read, whereas, in the old day, readers had to wait until they could purchase a copy from their local bookstores. They also could rent a copy from the library but it was almost impossible to be the lucky one who got a copy not already rented out. Nowadays, in today's trend, it comes to the buyer's preference. Readers have more powers on where to buy their book. As a reader, I like the physical feel of a book. I am also an impatient reader. If there is a book that I, eagerly want to read and cannot wait to go to a store, I download it and read it off my Kindle. I would guess that my problem with Kindle is the convenience factor. There are times that I don't have my device with me. It also runs out of battery if you put it aside after a read. The next that you go to it, you cannot read until you begin to charge it. It can become unconvineint.

How Important is Social Media for New Authors

How Important is Social Media for New Authors  Life as a new author can be challenging at the beginning. This is more so if you are not an active user on social media. It takes time to build your audience. You could argue that this is due to a generational change. If your target audiences are from millennial and younger then you know for a fact that it is almost mandatory to be present online. I can only assume that in the old days and perhaps with the baby boomers and older, you could get by without one. But, this would mean that you go old school by writing all your articles for the daily newspaper and destroying trees. If you start to analyze this transitional change, you will note that the baby boomers are forced to move forward or they will fall behind with gaining readers. These days, most readers are not holding a newspaper. They are on their phones, computers, and laptops. You could argue that there are online newspapers. However, if you do not share your social
