Families delaing with cancer get help from Jefferson students



Recently, students from Mrs. LeRoy's, Mrs. O'Rourke's, Miss Pink's and Miss Scotti's classes teamed up to decorate Christmas bags for the patients of The Melodies Center for Pediatric Oncology and Hematology to use while they "shop" for presents for their family members when they are at appointments.

Ayven Trestick, a first grader at Jefferson and a cancer survivor, was a former patient at Albany Med, and her family is always looking for ways to give back. Her mother and teacher came up with the idea for the activity, and the Tresticks will deliver the bags in time for holiday shopping!
