How Childhood Leukemia Society Came About
Childhood Leukemia Society was formed by the James Speranta Organization for the sole purpose of supporting children and their families who have been diagnosed with Leukemia and cancer related illness in the City of Monrovia and adjacent cities. The Organization will hold blood drives and community charity events to raise funds, educate and raise awareness with the intent to assist children with cancer.
The James Speranta Organization was founded by the Speranta family following the diagnosis of their 16-year-old son James with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. James is currently undergoing a 3-year treatment program at the City of Hope for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. It is their hope that this organization will serve as a vehicle to help and educate other children and their families that are victims of this shocking diagnosis of Childhood Cancer. The stress and effects on the families are long lasting and can be devastating. “1 in 5 children diagnosed with cancer in the US will not survive. For the ones that do the battle is never over.” – Cancer Society of the United States.
