Press On Fund

On the eve of his 7th birthday, my middle son Brennan was diagnosed with an aggressive form of pediatric leukemia.

After several relapses and an unheard of four bone marrow transplants in 18 months, Brennan was pronounced cancer free in 2011.
After discovering the disparities in pediatric cancer research funding and treatment options, Tara and her husband were inspired to co-found the Press On Fund with Stephen and Erin Chance, long-time friends whose son Patrick was battling a different aggressive childhood cancer.

Our Mission

The Press On Fund’s mission is to identify feasible and groundbreaking alternative therapies for childhood cancers and to invest in a manner that supports the science and infrastructure needed to cure childhood cancer within our lifetime.
