What is sickle cell disease?
Meet C.U.R.E. Kid Sidney!
Sidney was born and raised in Rochester, NY. He will be entering his junior year at School of the Arts as a Visual Arts major. In his spare time, he likes to draw, play video games, shop online and at the mall. He is also the taste-tester and critic for at-home family meals. Diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease, Sidney thanks his parents for the love and support and CURE for the role it plays in his well-being
We are so thrilled to share that Sidney is going to be one of our C.U.R.E. Kid Chefs for this year’s Recipe for a CURE Sunday Brunch on Sunday, September 29th!
Are you looking for someone to help tutor your child? CURE Childhood Cancer Association works with Boost to provides supplementary tutoring for children with cancer and other chronic diseases, which may prevent normal educational development. The group of teachers at Boost Tutors, will not supplement the tutoring being provided by the school, but will act as a “boost” to a child by helping him/her better understand material being presented at the child’s grade level. The tutors use their teaching expertise to fill the gap left when traditional schooling is not possible. The group is currently in need of volunteer tutors, also. For more information please contact Adella Ivison, Program Coordinator for CURE at 585-317-7269 or Adella.firstname.lastname@example.org and she will make a referral.
