Through Aron’s efforts and our own fundraising, the Childhood Cancer Foundation has been able to raise large sums used for helping more children survive cancer. Aron wholeheartedly shares the Childhood Cancer Foundation’s values and, like us, wants to advance research and treatment of children with cancer,” says Per Leander, Director of the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation.
