We started with… some tennis greats

We started with… some tennis greats. Thanks to James Blake, Mardy Fish, Andy Roddick, and the Bryan Brothers, and our amazing corporate sponsor, Anthem, there is research in childhood cancer happening at VCU Massey Cancer Center. In 2007, Blake and Fish played in Richmond for the AnthemLIVE tennis challenge. The following year, Blake and Roddick took on the Bryan Brothers. Over $100,000 was directed to the Connor's Heroes Pediatric Cancer Research Fund. It was what we needed to jumpstart our campaign. We proved that Connor's Heroes was serious about childhood cancer research. Now, six years later, Richmond has Dr. Corey, a research oncologist in pediatric cancer. He is the first endowed chair named for pediatric cancer research in Richmond!
