For the fourth year, Andrean High School National Honor Society Students have raised and donated money to benefit breast cancer patients.
The Cardinal Flahiff Chapter of the National Honor Society from Andrean High School donated $1,844.70 from their annual fundraiser to Franciscan Health Crown Point Breast Care Center. The funds are raised through the sale of sweatshirts the students design and create.
Franciscan Health Crown Point Breast Care Center Nurse Navigator Joan Filipowski said, “We really appreciate the generous donations of the Andrean High School National Honor Society. These donations have helped women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer obtain transportation to their appointments and provided monies for groceries and other financial burdens. The funds also help us educate women about their disease and offer emotional support.”
Other members of the community can supplement the efforts of Andrean’s students and donate to the Franciscan Health Foundation’s cancer care programs by going online at FranciscanHealthFoundation.org/programs/cancer-care or by calling (219) 661-3401.
