Carnival Against Cancer to Benefit Ladybug Fund

          St. Thomas Aquinas College will join  with Rockland Community College, Nyack College, and  Dominican College to host and participate in the Carnival Against Cancer, in support of St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Project Ladybug Fund. The carnival will be held on Friday, April 20th at 4 pm to 10 pm on the front lawn of STAC.
           The Project Ladybug Fund is like the multi-million dollar Make-A-Wish Foundation, only it is a local charity that is dedicated to raising money to help young patients with cancer or rare blood diseases. Project Ladybug  offers “wish trips,” toys during the holidays and art supplies in order  to allow the children to create positive memories as an incentive to get better. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
          This year's carnival is in memory of STAC student Kristina Simon’s mother, Cindy- Lee Simon, who died in July 2010 due to lung cancer.
