Pennies for Patients

LLS

Thank you for joining our Hero Squad and supporting Pennies for Patients! We’re so thankful for your partnership and support of our mission. We received your generous donation of $1,485.93, the school’s largest to date! Congratulations on such a banner year! On behalf of our remarkable Honored Heroes and their families, and our Pennies for Patients team, we’d like to express our sincerest gratitude for the generosity of your community. With the help of schools like yours, our chapter was able to give financial support to more than 1,000 local patients and their families this past year. With your support, we’re well on our way to helping even more this year!

2017 was also a record breaking year for our mission of advancing blood cancer research and finding new treatments. The FDA approved 12 new treatments funded by LLS, including this CAR t-cell gene therapy, that gives hope to thousands of families with children battling ALL, the most common leukemia diagnosis in kids and adolescents. Again, none of this progress would be possible without the help of incredible partners like the students and staff at Cherokee Heights.
