Superhero students

Recently, five members of the College of Allied Health Professions Love Your Melon (LYM) crew visited a six-year-old boy named Owen in his Kindergarten classroom for LYM’s national superhero day.

Kaylee Samway, Alli Gilliland, Shaela Wengert, Megan Mihulka, and Mariah Clark spent the day designing fabric squares with Owen and his classmates so they can make them into a quilt so Owen will have something to keep him warm during his remaining months of chemotherapy for brain cancer.

Love Your Melon is an apparel brand that is dedicated to giving a hat to every child battling cancer in America as well as supporting 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization who lead the fight against pediatric cancer.
