Dear Friend,

My second grade class has the power to make a postive impact on the lives of blood cancer patients! Our school will be joining others across Central California in a program that will be instrumental in raising funds for lifesaving cancer research. 

They'll be taking part in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Pennies for Patients. During a three-week period, students collect spare change to support LLS's mission: To cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.  Last year, my class raised over $300 and this year we are going big! Our class goal is to raise $500.00!

What these children will learn about service, leadership and philanthropy will be immeasurable. And, the impact they'll have on patients' lives will be limitless. Many LLS-funded advances are already helping not only blood cancer patients, but people with other conditions, including solid tumors and autoimmune diseases. 

Each child received their own box for collecting spare change. This online fundraising page was created so that you can share our goal with your family and friends. 

Thank you in advance for helping patients with blood cancers live longer, better lives.
