Offering to Fight Cancer

Keeping with the traditions of the Lenten season, sixth-graders at Glendale’s St. Pancras School took up a collection to support the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. As noted, many of the students gave up sweets during the 40 days of Lent and donated the money they saved to the hospital. According to teacher Walter Stark, the students gained a greater appreciation of the effort when they recently met a cancer patient currently being treated at Sloan Kettering.
