Day 24: Only One Week Left

Help us make a difference
Press On was created by parents looking for solutions. We seek out innovative research focused on cures for the toughest childhood cancers. Our kids deserve the best. They deserve long, healthy lives after cancer, free from the long-term side effects caused by current treatments.
This month, we’re matching all donations made to Press On to go towards Target Pediatric AML, a grassroots effort to speed targeted therapies and personalized medicine for pediatric Acute Myeloid Leukemia. The genetic testing that will be provided by this 10 MILLION dollar project will not only identify specific targets for AML, but could even point to drugs already on the shelf that could be used to combat AML. A cure could already be out there!
It’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and it’s time to donate to Press On. Thank you to those who have already contributed. You are what make us great! Please share our story with your friends – do it for Patrick, for Brennan, for Hallie. Do it for Burke. Do it for Maya, whom you learned about last week, and who has been on a ventilator since Monday. Cancer free but still fighting, send up your prayers and positive thoughts for Maya!
TpAML wants to make sure that what’s happening to Maya doesn’t happen to anyone else who faces AML in the future. Our kids deserve treatments that won’t wreak havoc on the rest of their systems. There’s only one week left of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Donate and share today.
“We’re not gonna stop funding childhood cancer research until we stop losing kids.”
P.S. Our goals for ACTION are so audacious they literally cannot be achieved without your help. For the entire month of September, every dollar donated to Press On ~ up to $250,000! ~ will be MATCHED for Target Pediatric AML (“TpAML”), a MOONSHOT project aimed at identifying genomic targets for pediatric Acute Myeloid Leukemia patients so that researchers can create specific, targeted treatments. These targeted ~ and consequently less toxic ~ treatments FOR KIDS are what Press On is all about! Please, if you are comfortable doing so, take just a few minutes of your time to DONATE NOW and SHARE today’s blog post on your Facebook page, or share via personal email with friends whom you believe have the passion to help us make a difference.
Thank you for supporting the Press On Fund!
