CHAMPAIGN -- September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It's the second leading cause of death among children.

According to the American Cancer Society, there will be nearly 12,000 new cancer diagnoses this year. Fortunately, with recent advances in treatment, long-term survival rates for children continue to improve.

Unfortunately, one child who didn't survive his battle with cancer was Danny Nardi. He died in March just before his 11th birthday.

His mother, Cristina Toharia, and former teacher, Roselle Bhosale, are here to tell us about his fight.
