Connor’s Heroes nonprofit hopes to encourage pediatric cancer research in Richmond

“I’m hopeful that as more and more people in the local community learn that there is pediatric cancer research happening right here in Richmond, that they don’t have to send a check to St. Jude’s or St. Baldrick’s, they can actually donate to Connor’s Heroes and it goes right to research that’s happening here,” said Lisa Goodwin, the group’s executive director and Connor’s mom. Dr. Seth Corey and his team are able to manipulate the zebrafish genes so the fish have features similar to children with SDS.
