“A feather from Patrick’s angel wings.”

Last Sunday, we asked that you tell 3 people about Press On. After a week of discussing Patrick and the loss that still impacts us today, we have an even more important challenge. Today, we ask that you turn off your cell phone, turn off the TV, and spend at least 15 minutes with your family. Treasure your kids, or if you do not have children, treasure your family or the family of friends you have made for yourself. We know school is in full swing, and kids have homework or parents have calls they need to make. Maybe someone’s trying to catch up on Game of Thrones. But please, take some time today to savor the life you have together. Play a game, or take a walk around the neighborhood, or discuss everyone’s goals for the school year. Be grateful for your loved ones, and show your gratitude by taking just a little time to really ~be~ with them. If you can only take 15 minutes, that’s okay. It will be the most important 15 minutes you have all week.

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!
