EVENT DATE: Dec 03, 2015
Grace Adamson, a senior at Barrington High School wants you to come for a walk with us! Why? Here is her answer...Approximately 55,000 new cases of Leukemia will be diagnosed in 2015. This blood cancer affects not only the patient but their loved ones as well. I know this first hand because last year my Mom was diagnosed with Leukemia. I am a senior at Barrington High School and for my Senior Project I will be planning, organizing, and hosting a walk for Leukemia with all proceeds benefiting my mentor’s foundation, The Michael H. Flanagan Foundation. The Flanagan Foundation’s mission is to comfort Leukemia and Bone Marrow Transplant patients and their families. They provide Comfort Bags for those newly diagnosed and also financial grants as there are so many hidden costs of cancer. The goal of the Michael H. Flanagan Foundation is to enhance the patient’s quality of life. Please join me at Using Feet for Defeat in order to raise funds for this important cause.
