VOTE NOW TO SUPPORT SWAN FOR LIFE!
Swan for Life Cancer Foundation was fortunate to receive a grant in 2012 from LIVESTRONG to bring Art Therapist, Lindsey Klingenberg, MA, LLPC, to the infusion centers in Clarkston and Rochester. Over the last several months Lindsey has been spending hours with patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment creating art as a modality to express emotions and aid in healing. Many patients have commented regularly that "Art has saved them" and they "no longer dread treatment because they look forward to the latest art project Lindsey has for them."
Clarkston Junior High School Students donate over $200 to Swan for Life!
Clarkston Junior High School’s 2012 Leadership Class recently donated over $200 to Swan For Life as part of the school’s spirit week. Swan for Life was chosen because it is located in Clarkston and benefits our community. Students were asked to wear pink for “Pink Out Day” to benefit Swan for Life, a Clarkston area cancer foundation. Students came dressed in pink tutus, pink jerseys and pink everything and donated a dollar to the charity. Overall, $218 was collected and given to Swan For Life.
