Pennies for Patients week is coming February 1 - 5. We will be collecting spare change and other donations to support Pennies for Patients, a cancer education program and fundraiser benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
* Every day, approximately 33 parents learn their child has cancer.
* Every 4 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer.
* Leukemia is the number one cancer in children and young adults under age 20.
* In the early 1060's, only 1 in 25 children survived leukemia. Today, more than 8 in 10 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia survive.
