We started with a… song

We started with a… song. Connor absolutely loved Sam Bush and his music when he was going through treatment. Sam is the “King of Newgrass.” He plays everywhere and with everyone, including Allison Kraus, Emmylou Harris and (gasp!) Taylor Swift. A cancer survivor himself, Sam was touched by Connor's story. He was even more amazed that Connor, at age three, knew the words to all his songs. Even now, he occasionally calls from the road to ask how Connor is doing.  We know him as a friend. Connor still thinks of him as one of his heroes. 

Much of what we know about treating adult cancers has been learned from childhood cancer research. Funding childhood cancer research will not only benefit cancer's youngest patients, like Connor and our Heroes currently in treatment, but also Sam and othera adults. Thank you to everyone who's made Dr. Corey and the research fund possible. Stay tuned to find out how you can help us reach an important milestone
