SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) - More than 300,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and 100,000 of those children pass away. Now anyone in the state can help fund pediatric cancer research by simply getting a new license plate. Kimberly Wade said it was her son Jonny's wish to raise more awareness and funds for pediatric cancer. "He would often tell me 'Momma, I would do this all over again if we could save one kid',"Wade said.
