SPECIAL TO THE VINDICATOR
Noah McLemore, an eighth-grader from Canfield whose aunt was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, looked for ideas to help her feel better. He and his mother put together a package he calls a “cancer care bag.” For three months he and other middle school students collected donations of items and prepared the bags. The bags each contain a water bottle, lip balm, mints, a lap blanket and a journal. They delivered 108 bags to the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center, and two bags were given to people the children know, who are suffering with cancer. Above, middle school students participating, from left, are Noah Clark and Emily Hura of Columbiana; Elijah McLemore of Canfield, Savannah Pew of Greenford, Natasha Flak of Salem, Cheyenne Trump of New Waterford and Noah McLemore.
