The students in Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), Advisors Billie Frye, RN and Cindy Albertson, RN; Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Advisor Holly Claborn; and SKILLS USA, Advisor Jason Harlan, at the KY Tech Clinton County Area Technology Center donated money recently for two worthy causes. Students raised $134.00 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease that causes thick, sticky mucus to form in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. Participating in this fundraiser allowed the students to become knowledgeable regarding a disease that affects an estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). Students collected $100.00 for the Leukemia& Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients’ fundraiser. This fundraiser is to help persons suffering from blood cancers such as Leukemia and Multiple Myeloma. This is an excellent opportunity for the students to assist others who are in need of medical support.
