CheerUp! Phelma (a local branch of a nationwide nonprofi t providing outreach to young cancer patients) has been busier than ever raising funds and increasing the student body’s awareness of cancer. “Pink October” was dedicated to bringing awareness to breast cancer and to the disease’s prevention. “Movember” focused on cancers aff ecting men, with a slate of initiatives that included a month during which men were encouraged to not shave their upper lip in order to win the “best moustache” contest. And in December and January CheerUp! Phelma will be selling 2016 calendars to students. All of these great ideas will of course contribute to making the wishes of local cancer patients come true.
