Cassandra Plachetka Professor Erger SOC 101­2 25 September 2016 Paper Proposal Getting diagnosed with cancer at any age is upsetting but the weight is even heavier when that patient is a child. A childhood diagnosis not only affects the patient but also carries a  tremendous load upon the family specifically the parent(s). Childhood cancer is appropriate for  sociological analysis because of the widespread affects that diversity, social class, race, and  gender can have on the millions of children diagnosed and their families. From a global view this phenomenon has caused the uprising of organizations and support groups to comfort those going  through the process. With the use of reliable resources such as databases found in my school  library like JSTOR, I will be examining and researching childhood cancer using the three  different sociological perspectives: Structural Functional Approach, Social­Conflict Approach,  and the Symbolic­Interaction Approach. Through the Structural Functional perspective, I will look at the social structures  involved in childhood cancer and their functions in society. For example, childhood cancer  promotes stability in employment to form jobs and conduct research. Through the Social­ Conflict Approach I will examine the inequalities that cause conflict in society. For example, a  person’s social status can affect the treatment a patient receives raising the question, why doesn’t everyone get the same chance? Lastly, through the Symbolic­Interaction Approach I will  examine the different relationships including micro and macro level that are formed throughout  the process such as, the patient­family relationship. Using the three different sociological  perspectives will help me examine the effects of childhood cancer in society as a whole.  Cassandra Plachetka Professor Erger SOC 101­2 25 September 2016
