A message from Les Friedman, Mikey’s Dad:
To those of us who knew and loved Mikey and to all those who have since been touched by his determination to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer, Mikey is indeed our hero.
Each day across the United States and around the globe, childhood heroes face life threating illnesses with the same grace, determination and strength that Mikey did. These are the brothers, the sisters, the sons, daughters, relatives and friends of the people who love them as deeply and as profoundly as we love and cherish Mikey.
It is only fitting that we dedicate a blog category to recognize and honor some of the many childhood cancer heroes that we have had the honor and privilege to meet. They inspire us each day as we carry out the work that Mikey began.
