“As we walked in today, a little boy told us that he’s ‘demo day-ing’ his cancer treatment and that’s pretty much the best thing I’ve ever heard. In our world, demo day marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of a newer, more exciting one,”Chip saidduring the visit. “And that’s exactly what we want for you — we’re pulling for each and every one of you.”
