Dear Parents,

Starting today, Seven Oaks Elementary School is participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pennies for Patients 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 join in this effort of raising awareness and collecting funds to benefit the mission of LLS: to find cures for blood cancers 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 10 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 leukemia) went from a mere 3% to nearly 95% today! Your support is critical to help us find a cure and I hope you will join us in the fight against blood cancers!!!

Thank you so much for supporting LLS and Seven Oaks Elementary’s participation in the Pennies program! Together we can reach our goal of $3,000! For more information on Pennies for Patients or other LLS Student Series Programs, please visit: http://www.studentseries.org/.
