Throughout March, CHS students are sponsoring a charity event to help support treatment against leukemia and lymphoma. For those that aren’t aware, leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. Lymphoma is also a cancer that grows cells known as Lymphocytes.  These can affect lymph nodes and the spleen. Eventually, the Lymphocytes will grow out of control.

The event will be held until March 29th. Their goal is to raise 2,000 dollars for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Students will be able to donate money to the classroom and the classroom with the most money gets a pizza party. For adults, you may donate in the office at the High School.

Member of NHS (National Honor Society) Olivia Haring said “ We are proud to raise money for a great cause and to support those who have leukemia and/or lymphoma.”
NHS member Lindsey Brown added, “This is a great way to support people with Leukemia and I am proud to play a big part in it.”

Leukemia and lymphoma are very serious illnesses. It is important to help give them the treatment they need as the people with leukemia/lymphoma are fighting hard against it. Please donate to the school and help stop leukemia and lymphoma.
