Leukemia is cancer of the body's blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system. Many types of leukemia exist. Some forms of leukemia are more common in children. Other forms of leukemia occur mostly in adults. Leukemia usually involves the white blood cells. Your white blood cells are potent infection fighters — they normally grow and divide in an orderly way, as your body needs them. But in people with leukemia, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells, which don't function properly.
When we found out that two people very near and dear to our hearts had been affected by Leukemia, we felt that we wanted to help in some way to make a difference in the face of such a troubling time. One family of ours has been affected by the illness as well as a Team ELM staff member. Our thoughts are with one of our Team ELM kids as he gets his port removed- something to celebrate!
One of our main goals at Team ELM is to make sure our families and staff know that we are not only there for them when we are there in their homes but that we are always thinking of them and are always doing our best to show our support to them no matter what they are needing and/or going through. We are so looking forward to supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation, New Jersey , a wonderful organization with this fun packed fundraiser!
The Make-A-Wish Foundation, New Jersey, each day grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the Garden State. They believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer for children with life-threatening medical conditions and enriches the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Want to read the story about the FIRST wish kid, Chris, who was diagnosed with Leukemia back in the early 1980's? Click here!
This fundraiser is going to be a big one and with a surprise fan experience down on the ice at the end for all those who attend with Team ELM!
Proceeds from the ticket sales will be going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, New Jersey. Seats are first come, first serve and currently have room for 100 people in total. Tickets range from $56 to $80 a person, depending on what section of Team ELM designated seat you decide on. We love spending time with our families and are so looking forward to this awesome event for a great cause in January! Invite all your friends and family to the game (you do not have to be a Team ELM family to join in on the fun and contribute to a great cause)! If you would like to donate to the cause but are unable to attend, we can accept your donations through January.
