[ASB] Pennies for Patients Coin Drive through Friday, April 6
​​Hey Spartans,
Next week we will be hosting the annual
​P​
ennies for
​P​
atients coin drive. This drive works with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
​ (LLS)​
who help people with blood cancer. LLS is the largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding research, funding cures ,and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients. 

Here are some facts about blood cancer:
  • Every 3 minutes, someone in the U.S is diagnosed with a blood cancer.
  • More than 1/3 of blood cancer patients still do not survive 5 years after their diagnosis.
  • Every 9 minutes, someone in the U.S dies of a blood cancers.
  • Last year, LLS invested nearly 79.8 million in cutting-edge research.
  • The survivor rate of childhood Leukemia was 3 % in 1960 – it is now over 90%.
When you donate to the coin drive next week you are helping to stop blood cancer and help those who are battling it. Boxes will be put in every 2nd period class and will be there until Friday, April 6th. Please look for any lose change or dollar bills that you could donate to the cause. You can also donate online on the online donation page. Any and all donations are welcome and encouraged. Please help spread the word!
 
Thank you in advance for your participation in this wonderful drive! Feel free to contact me with any questions.
