After Jack died, Annie was inspired to raise awareness about childhood cancer and the need to find a cure.
"We can't just win this battle against an awful disease with people trying to fight it. We need everyone fighting together. Because with only those affected, it's like trying to win the war with only the wounded," she said.
Annie founded G9, in which the G stands for gold and the nine represents September, the color and number of month for childhood cancer awareness.
Dr. Michael Kelly is the cancer program director at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. He believes it's important to raise awareness about the disease.
