Pasta for Pennies
Our school is thrilled to be participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s School & Youth Programs! Students who participated in Pennies for Patients, Pasta for Pennies presented by Olive Garden, or the LLS High School Program, raised nearly $28 million to fund breakthrough therapies to save the lives of blood cancer patients.
Funds raised through programs like School & Youth enable the discovery and delivery of therapies that improve the quality of life for patients. From 2000 through 2013, almost 40 percent of new anti-cancer drugs were FDA-approved for blood cancer patients — more first-ever approvals than for any other group of cancers — and many of these were advanced with funding from LLS.
