Honors anatomy and physiology students at Hart High School are invited to participate in a cancer project every year after studying a unit on cancer.
Some students volunteer for local cancer fundraisers like the annual Leukemia & Lymphoma “Light the Night” walk, while other students design their own project.
This school semester, 60 of Paula Bae’s 150 honors students chose to participate. Kimi Stevenson, shown here with cancer patient, chose to make tutus and deliver them to the bone marrow transplant ward of Los Angeles Children’s Hospital.
Students raised nearly $2,000 and volunteered over 100 hours to 10 different organizations, greatly benefitting from the generosity of the students. Other organizations included City of Hope, Sheila Veloz Breast Imaging Center, American Cancer Society and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
