PHASE ONE YOUTH CHAPTER
The Cancer Awareness Club at New Jewish Community High School in West Hills became Phase One’s first Youth Chapter in 2009. The club was established last year by five seniors who were affected by cancer in their families. Due to their experiences, they were motivated to educate their classmates. The club is dedicated to spreading awareness as well as fundraising for cancer research. The club hopes to involve the greater school community in this great cause and draw them into acts of tzedakah (charitable giving) and chesed (loving kindness).
BE AN ANGEL + SAVE A LIFE
"Be an Angel + Save a Life" was a Phase One program designed to add potential donors to the Bone Marrow National Registry. The program, started by high school students, became so successful it joined forces with City of Hope in 2008. To learn more about the program visit www.beanangelsavealife.org.
PHASE ONE AT
THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA
Inspired by her own family’s battles with cancer, Megan Chan (Penn ’09) spearheaded CURE for Cancer Research – a Phase One and “Be an Angel + Save a Life” Bone Marrow Drive on Penn’s College Green in late April 2008. The five-day event culminated with a downtown fundraiser on the night of April 25. The group has raised more than $10,000 to date for Phase One.
