Childhood Cancer Awareness: #noonefightsalone
Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 15 in the United States. One in five of these children do not become cancer survivors.
In order to increase childhood cancer awareness, three students: Erika Cruz, Syeda Zehra and I worked with our school’s administration to designate Friday, Dec. 15 as a day where students would be allowed to wear yellow and donate to St. Judes. The response went amazing as many showed up in yellow and gold (in support of the Golden Ribbon - what symbolizes Childhood Cancer Awareness).
Students received goodies for donating - such as lanyards and removable tattoos. In total we raised about $130 dollars in just an hour during A and B lunches. Donations will be sent to St. Judes.
