September 2013: Here's neuroblastoma-survivor Ashley talking about her experiences with cancer. She spoke at an event co-sponsored by RAC, the Gold Ribbon Project and the NC Children's Hospital where Gov. McCrory and the First Lady declared September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. We were so excited to have them out to meet some families, remember the kids we've lost and provide a real boost to those still fighting.
