Jackson Middle School's 331 students and 43 faculty members were busy the last week in September focusing on raising awareness of breast cancer and ovarian cancer in their "Think Pink" campaign! Gail's Anatomy is honored to be chosen to benefit from their fund-raising efforts. Amy McClain, a JMS teacher and Gail's Anatomy team member (and Gail's sister), represented our team at the October 1 pep rally. After telling the students about Gail, her days as a student at JMS, and ovarian cancer, Amy accepted a check on behalf of Gail's Anatomy in the amount of $896.50. Yes, $896.50!
Ovarian cancer strikes women of all ages and JMS' generosity will add significantly to our year-round awareness activities.
Thank you, JMS students and faculty! You are AMAZING!
