September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release August 30, 2013
Presidential Proclamation — National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, 2013


– – – – – – –



Every September, America renews our commitment to curing childhood cancer and offers our support to the brave young people who are fighting this disease. Thousands are diagnosed with pediatric cancer each year, and it remains the leading cause of death by disease for American children under 15. For those children and their families, and in memory of every young person lost to cancer, we unite behind improved treatment, advanced research, and brighter futures for young people everywhere.

Over the past few decades, we have made great strides in the fight against pediatric cancer. Thanks to significant advances in treatment over the last 30 years, the combined 5-year survival rate for children with cancer increased by more than 20 percentage points. Today, a substantial proportion of children diagnosed with cancer can anticipate a time when their illness will be in long-term remission or cured altogether.

My Administration is dedicated to carrying this progress forward. We are funding extensive research into the causes of childhood cancer and its safest and most effective treatments. We also remain committed to easing financial burdens on families supporting a loved one with cancer. Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies can no longer deny coverage to children with pre-existing conditions or set lifetime caps on essential health benefits. As of January 2014, insurers will be prohibited from dropping coverage for patients who choose to participate in a clinical trial, including clinical trials that treat childhood cancer.

All children deserve the chance to dream, discover, and realize their full potential. This month, we extend our support to young people fighting for that opportunity, and we recognize all who commit themselves to advancing the journey toward a cancer-free world.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 2013 as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. I encourage all Americans to join me in reaffirming our commitment to fighting childhood cancer.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirtieth day of August, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-eighth.

June 2nd episode: Father Scott Elliott, Amma the hugging Saint, Technology and Yoga
by Leslie Godbold

This week on Positively Living, Father Scott Elliott joins me to discuss healing, meditation and monasteries. We learn about  Mata Amritanandamayi, “the Hugging Saint”  and Technology aids in rebuilding Jewish history.

Mata “Amma” Amrtanandnmayi – The Hugging Saint

Positively Living Moment: Amma, the healing Saint- Amma “Mother” has hugged millions across the world. She is currently on tour across the United States. Who is she? What is her message? Is she real or fake? You decide!
                                            Technology aids in rebuilding  Jewish History– the Genizah project is part of a growing movement to piece together fragments of the past via technology.

Our Focus on World Topic: On face book this week , we saw a school where parents were in an uproar over yoga classes. The parents and community leaders said practicing this type of yoga was a type of  religious brainwashing. Is Yoga religious or physical training?

Our guest is Father Scott Elliott of New Seeds Priory in Black Mountain NC. Father Elliott enlightens us on new monastic movement, healing, meditation, Celtic spirituality and more.

Is meditation mentioned in the bible? What does Jesus say about it? Is healing by prayer possible?

More about:
Fr. Scott is the Prior of New Seeds Priory… New Seeds Priory is an Inter-Spiritual,  contemplative practice community.  We are a community of Christians walking a spiritual path together that integrates simplicity, mindfulness, meditation, and prayer.  We are a community of inquiry, practice, learning and service.

Our practice is grounded in traditional Christian practices of contemplative prayer and simple monastic life and in the Buddhist practices of mindfulness, meditation, and deep insight. Our community is inclusive, welcoming, and open to anyone seeking a deeper experience of the Divine in their daily lives or in incorporating the Buddhist practices of mindfulness to enrich their practice of being a Christian.

We meet regularly in Black Mountain, NC for a Day-of-Mindful-Practice that includes mindful work, study, prayer, worship and spiritual direction. We also meet weekly for an informal, contemplative Celtic Eucharist on Sundays and a Christian-Zen Buddhist meditation and study group on Thursday evenings. Both weekly gatherings are held at the Prior’s home in Black Mountain, NC.
