My name is Shawana Renee Hackney. I am a Senior at RECHS in Mr.Smith’s English Class. I am doing a Graduation Project on Pediatric Oncology. I am focusing on the best environment for a child and what best eases a child’s pain and discomfort while in the hospital. I have alot of neat ideas for my product such as, organizing a toy drive for Brenner Children’s Hospital. I also am planning on making cards with facts and a gold ribbon for childhood cancer to pass out to raise awareness. Also I am trying to sell things around school like candy bars and organizing other activities to try and raise money for the hospital. I am also Collecting Pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in Winston Salem at my school and within my family.
My goal is to reach out to people who are not aware of Pediatric Cancer and to help others who are seeking to raise awareness. My mission is to bring awareness to my community and help raise money for research to find a cure! Pediatric Cancer does not get noticed enough!
