Pennies for Patients Thank You Letter from the RI Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Mar, 25 2019

Tiogue Elementary School

Dear Gina D'Aguanno,

Congratulations! Tiogue Elementary School has officially completed its Pennies for Patients campaign, and we couldn’t be more grateful to you and your entire school community for your outstanding efforts. Thanks to you, our Hero Squad is one step closer to accomplishing our mission: a world without blood cancers.

The money you collected will fund important cancer research and local patient services – both vital to the fight against blood cancers. Now more than ever, our patients are relying on our support to cover the cost of care. In the past year, we have doubled the number of patients assisted through our patient financial aid grants. Thanks to your school community, we can continue to meet the demand for this, and other patient services. Your students are truly a key part of our patient support system. Your school’s generosity does make a difference!

Please pass along our deepest appreciation to your students and faculty. Your hard work and dedication are truly inspiring.


KATIE WARRENSFORD | Vice President, Student Series
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
