"When Harlan was diagnosed in early 2013 with a malignant brain tumor, it made me realize how tragic of an issue childhood cancer is and how it can change the course of life in an instant. Having a child this close in age to Harlan at the time of his (Harlan's) diagnosis really hit home for me and put into perspective just how precious of a gift life is.
When asked to take on the role as marketing and graphic design(er) for Harlan's Heroes, I did not hesitate to say yes. Harlan's Heroes has given me the opportunity to use my God given talent of art and design to help spread awareness of childhood cancer. It has also allowed me to be involved with a wonderful group of people that share the same goal of helping families with children that have recurring brain cancer."- Cortney
