I am the founder of Helena’s Hope with a goal to find pathways to more kids surviving cancer. Helena’s Hope is supported by over 100 Canadian childhood cancer families from 8 Provinces who are collaboratively advocating the government for increased funding and access to early stage clinical trials and innovative treatments.
