Did you know that only 4% of all cancer research funds are dedicated to Children’s cancer? When parents Michael Casaus and Naomi Natale learned their then two year old son Sebastián had a rare, aggressive, and incurable Stage IV cancer they used their collective skills to create partnerships and a non-profit organization to raise funds to find treatments and a cure. They also created a community art project, “Sebastián’s Song” that has curated healing songs from around the world.  Michael is The Wilderness Society’s New Mexico state director, environmental advocate, long-term non-profit leader, and W.K. Kellogg Foundation Fellow. Naomi is an award winning community artist activist and Fellow of multiple organizations including TED Global.
