Volunteer Appreciation Month
“My name is Jovi and I am turning 6 at the end of April. I have Beta Thalassemia Major and I will be having my 80th blood transfusion this month. Even though I have a chronic illness, it doesn’t define who I am. I am a sweet and energetic boy whose smiles lights up the room. I have a silly sense of humor and I love to make others laugh. I love to dance and have some pretty unique and one-of-a-kind dance moves. I have a huge obsession for Ghostbusters, Scooby-Doo, anything Lego and all villians (because they have more fun). My favorite thing to eat is chocolate ice cream with rainbow sprinkles but it definitely has to be on a cone. My favorite hobbies are camping, soccer, mini-golf, making sandcastles, traveling, drawing and building the biggest cities with all my toys. I love to celebrate all the holidays with Halloween and Christmas being my 2 favorite. I love dressing up to anything themed and in costume and I have a “go big or go home” attitude about it. As you can see, Thalassemia is just a tiny part of me.”

Art Work Needed
We have a “Wall of Fame” at the Twelve Corners Starbucks that features artwork of our CURE kids. We would love to feature your work and the wall could use a little love. Some SPRING themed pictures would really brighten up the wall!! Please do not include last names on your pieces. They can be sent to the CURE office (CURE Childhood Cancer Association, ATTN: Andrea Shaffer, 200 Westfall Road, Rochester, NY 14620) or given to Kiersten or Adella at the hospital.
