Awareness Week – Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month
September 19, 2016 @ 8:00 am - September 24, 2016 @ 12:00 pm
Wear GOLD to class this week in recognition of this important issue!
This has touched the hearts of many and especially the families at AFS. Please support this local Fund in recognition of former AFS dancer, Maddie Harrill.
The families of Emily Barger and Maddie Harrill established the Butterfly Fund at the East Tennessee Foundation in memory of their daughters. Both of these beautiful little girls were diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer, in 2007. Sadly, both of these girls passed away just weeks apart during the summer of 2008.
The Butterfly Fund supports research, treatment and services dedicated to the defeat of childhood cancers. To date we have donated $215,000 to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and $20,000 to CureSearch.
