Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Collect for Cures

 

Leukemia

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

Starting February 4, 2019, BEAVER FALLS HIGH SCHOOL is participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Collect for Cures program; a service-learning program that gives students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancers!  We are asking that everyone (students, faculty, parents, alumni, etc.) at BEAVER FALLS HIGH SCHOOL join in this effort of raising awareness and collecting funds to benefit the mission of LLS: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life for patient and their families.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

 

Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 9 minutes someone loses their battle. Thanks to the support of people like you, doctors are getting closer to finding a cure every day!  In the 1960’s the 5-year survival rate for children under the age of 20 with ALL (the most common form of childhood leukemia) went from a mere 3% to approximately 90% today!  Your support is critical to help us find a cure and I hope you will join us in the fight against blood cancers!!!
