PRES Kindergartener Lucas Harashima was recently diagnosed with brain cancer (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma or DIPG). PRES will soon be launching a school-wide community service project to collect change for The Cure Starts Now Foundation, which provides funding for research for DIPG. You can follow Lucas' quest to crush cancer on a Facebook page set up by his family, "Lucas Harashima Cancer Crush"
On that page, they also have information on a family fundraising campaign on youcaring.com to assist his family during this trying time.
We hope you'll visit both and help in any way you can. Please watch backpacks for more information about the PRES effort to raise awareness and funds for DIPG and related research.
