“I know one day in my life we’ll see a world with no brain tumors,” said Star Michelle, who helped PBTF President and CEO Robin Boettcher present an award to Honda for their 25 years of support. “I’m happy to say that in two days I will be a 17-year pediatric brain tumor survivor,” Michelle said. “I want to thank American Honda for being the light that has rekindled our hearts.”
