Book/DVD Drive:

For Childhood Cancer Awareness month, kids of Isaac's Rays of Hope hosted a book drive at Saint Francis/Holy Ghost schools in
Jerseyville, IL. Over 150 books and 150 DVDs were collected for the children at Mercy Children's Hospital and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center. While visiting Mercy Children's Hospital, IROH proudly donated $5,000 to the children and families in the Hem/Onc department for out of pocket expenses related to treatments, i.e., co-payments, deductibles, transportation expenses, etc.

Be the Match - Bone Marrow Registry Drive:

A bone marrow drive was held with Be The Match in honor of Kelsie Scoggins, a young lady from Kane, IL who is in need of a second
bone marrow transplant. We were able to sign up 34 new bone marrow donors on the Be the Match registry and raised over $300!
