In the true spirit of community, Loudenville Elementary has come together to support Ali Bawla, a student who was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year, by raising money and collecting toys, books and gift cards for the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Albany Medical Center.
“The families and students at Loudonville have expressed an outpouring of love and support for Ali and his family,” said Loudonville Principal Kerry Flynn. “The collection for the Melodies Center at Albany Medical Center was one way to demonstrate that support. Ali has his school community standing by his side and he is not fighting this battle alone.”
The Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders is leading the way in specialized treatments, leading-edge expertise and ground-breaking research; and cares for many of the children and teens in the capital region who are dealing with cancer and blood disorders.
All of the toys and gifts that were donated help to keep many of these children happy in their toughest times.
A huge shout out and thank you to all of the Loudonville families for their support!
