Survival rates for children with acute lymphocytic leukemia, the most common childhood cancer, have risen over the past 60 years from 3 percent to nearly 90 percent. With continued support from caring and committed individuals, LLS can continue to fund research to find a cure for blood cancers and realize the goal of 100 percent survival! The contest was between the students in all Advisory classes. Coach Shari Knight’s class won with a total of $756.62 and the total collected by the school was $4205.35. Way to go WILDCATS!!!!
