Please Support Pennies for Patients!!
APT will be taking part in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Pennies for Patients program.  The program will run until Memorial Day.  We will collect money to support LLS's mission to find cures and ensure access to treatment for blood cancer patients.  Money collected by our APT students will help local patients fight the most fatal disease of children under the age of 15.  Your support will bring LLS closer to finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's Disease and myeloma and help improve the quality of life of these patients.
 
You can send your donations to Nurse Kathy.  Loose change will be collected in a container in the health office.  
 
Thank you in advance for assisting LLS to create a world without blood cancer.
