Pediatric Cancer Action Network is pleased to announce that one of our very own directors, Erika Shelton, has been selected as the 2015 Mrs. Nebraska! Erika is a co-founder of PCAN, a mother of two wonderful children, and has been married to Jayme Shelton for thirteen years. She is a strong advocate for pediatric cancer awareness and will be a great asset to the state's efforts to cure childhood cancer and support families currently in the battle. Congratulations Erika and family! We are so proud of you!
