Pennies for Patients is a service-learning project that gives students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancers. We are asking that faculty, students, and parents at HMS join this effort of raising funds to help find cures for blood cancers and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
