Hannah S., a high school student in Delray Beach, FL:
When I first began this endeavor, I envisioned my website to include local, deserving charities. I was looking for unique and special organizations that impressed me because of their focus.
I chose the Annie Appleseed Project because cancer is a special concern for me, and I am aware of cancer's increasing imminent danger for us. Two years ago, I lost my cousin and godfather to a rare type of cancer called synovial sarcoma. My aunt and his widow is an assistant dean at the University of Miami and works as a research doctor. Cancer has become a household word, not so uncommon any longer.
For many of my friends, classmates, and other teens living in my county, cancer is very real. Those kids will want to be a part of the future of cancer, and that reason was a significant role in why the Annie Appleseed Project is listed on my site.
My hope is that many students work with Ann, and help find the cure for cancer.
