It’s puzzling to think about why children would have to suffer some of the most agonizing illnesses in life. At such a young age, they haven’t done much in their lives neither have they experienced the various aspects of life, they probably haven’t made any wrong lifestyle choices that got them to that point.
Still, children get leukemia. It may be because of genetics or things that their parents were exposed to that made some alterations in their gene pool and caused them to be more susceptible to developing leukemia. I don’t know, those are just mere speculations on my part. But, cancer scientist Mel Greaves was baffled by it and he went on a quest to find the answer. And he has.
