8th Grade to 12th Grade Students Raised Funds to Provide Thanks for B.O.L.D. Program

Honors students from Thurgood Marshall Academy in Harlem, most of who live in the Bronx, will present a giant $1,500 check to Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care. The students, who were inspired by a recent article about the Bronx Oncology Living Program (B.O.L.D.), raised the money by selling baked goods, bracelets and ribbons. After the check presentation, the kids will enjoy a pizza party and scrapbooking with Center leadership and cancer survivors.

B.O.L.D. came out of a psychosocial needs assessment that found more than 53 percent of 1,012 patients had clinical levels of distress. B.O.L.D., which includes wellness workshop programs and other clinical and peer support, helps more than 700 patients each year navigate the overwhelming psychological, financial and emotional effects of cancer and its treatment. The check will help fund these critical services.
