“The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is a cause near and dear to my heart,” said Amy Riggs, Director at Taylion Academy. “As a teenager, my husband was diagnosed with A.L.L. Leukemia. I am happy that our Student Council has chosen to support this cause and the patients and families affected by these cancers.”
