Kids just want to be kids, but instead of playing sports with their friends or catching butterflies on a sunny day, these kids are getting liver transplants, taking dozens of medications, or getting their next dose of chemotherapy. It shouldn’t be this way. Jeans for Genes fundraising helps the scientists at Children’s Medical Research Institute find cures, so these kids can go back to being kids.We are very proud to say that our school community has raised $144today for Jeans for Genes.
