*Thank you to John Bartosz, Managing Attorney of The Kingsbury Firm, LLC, who helped shape the vision that launched G9 to honor of his children, Jack, Annie, and Tommy, and to secure a future of survival for all children diagnosed with cancer. John passed away on March 28, 2016 from the long term effects of chemotherapy and radiation from when he was in his 20s. We continue to miss you, John, and be inspired by your incredible impact on the world and those around you.
