“After losing her daughter, Nora, to a rare brain cancer, Tiffany McConathy started a nonprofit foundation to provide funds for pediatric cancer research.
Princess Nora’s Warrior Foundation seeks to provide a voice advocating to make childhood cancer a national priority by funding pediatric cancer research and helping families who are dealing with pediatric cancer.
