Press On Heroes

Press On Heroes are families who have been personally touched by childhood cancer and have joined Press On in the race for a cure.  Some Press On Heroes are in the midst of their child’s battle against pediatric cancer.  Some have experienced the devastating loss of a child to these horrendous diseases.  Other Heroes have watched a family member or friend fight for their life.  All of our Heroes are inspired by these brave children and have committed to help fundraise for Press On.  Read their stories and share their inspiration and passion to Press On for more effective, less toxic therapies for childhood cancer.
