Only three days left to help 'LiveStrong at School' teach kids about surviving and thriving with cancer!! http://bit.ly/kv8Ure

THE STORY:

Think our young students are too young to face cancer?   Think again.

I lost a leg and a lung to cancer in the mid-1980’s and despite having spent much of my youth battling cancer, I graduated from the University of Arizona with a teaching degree, then went on to earn an MA in Education, as well as an EDS in Reading. I've been teaching elementary school since 1985, and am currently a fourth grade teacher just south of Tucson.

Having survived sarcoma and lung cancer for over twenty-seven years, I feel I have a unique perspective on how important it is to inform kids on the clear benefits of a healthy, active and positive lifestyle. "LIVESTRONG at School" is a great way to get the message across.

With one in three people in the U.S. facing a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, children in classrooms everywhere are likely to be dealing with cancer right now—with a grandparent, parent, family member, friend or teacher.

Research shows that 25 percent of cancer survivors in the U.S. have school-aged children. Also, siblings of children with cancer report that the support they receive at school is just as important as the support they receive at home.

The "LIVESTRONG at School" curriculum offers online lessons for grades K–12 to help teach students about cancer in a way that is age-appropriate, inspiring and empowering.

Lessons include:

  • National standards
  • Clear learning objectives
  • Engaging videos
  • Extension activities
  • Ways that students can get involved in the fight against cancer

Check 'em out here

The program is flexible enough for teachers to adapt to their school community's needs. Teachers can review and make use of the free "LIVESTRONG at School" curriculum at any time.

Please support "LIVESTRONG at School" by donating to my project to help students cope with and learn about cancer.

Thanks so much!
