The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Pennies for Patients service project is underway at Heritage Academy. Leukemia is the most common cancer in children, adolescents and young adults younger than 20 years and it causes more deaths than any other cancer among this age group. Thanks to LLS funded research and the fundraising effort of programs like Pennies for Patients, survival rates for some blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled. Critical treatment innovations have originated through blood cancer research – radiation, chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, and new targeted therapies. LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. The National Honor Society members are leading the way with the Pennies for Patients service project by making signs, announcements, and walking around to classrooms encouraging donations. We have already collected over $250 in three days. One classroom, Mr. Costakis’s 3rd block class, has already reached the $100 mark and will be awarded a pennant from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to acknowledge their generosity. Now we are asking you, our extended family, to join us in our efforts to assist those diagnosed with blood cancers and help fund research for the cure. Designate the classroom of your choice to receive credit for your donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Go to http://scar.dojiggy.com/heritageacademy to make you donation online. Thank you in advance for all your support and generosity.
