Meet the Kania Family: Giving Tuesday Co-Chairs

Leah and PJ are parents to four-year-old daughter Olivia, who has been bravely fighting JM for almost two years. Together, they lead Cure JM’s annual Giving Tuesday Fundraiser. At the beginning of treatment, Leah and PJ felt helpless in easing Olivia’s pain—so they channeled their efforts into Cure JM.
