Pilot Talk on May 9

Be Inspired By a Child Cancer Survivor at Our Next Pilot Talk

On Tuesday, May 9, the OLP community will have a unique opportunity to hear from a true champion. Please join us in the Theatre during co-curricular (11:20 am) to hear from Julia, an amazingly strong 8-year-old girl who is battling cancer. Julia and her mom, Jessica, will share what true courage looks and sounds like as they fight cancer and prepare for an emotional and inspiring event: the Celebration of Champions.

The Celebration of Champions is a fundraising event for Rady Children’s Hospital, Peckham Center for Cancer Blood Disorders. The event was started 22 years ago by one of our own OLP alumna, Lisa (Meulmester) Peckham ’77, whose son also battled cancer as a child. OLP will host a booth at the Celebration of Champions on Saturday, May 20, and students will have the opportunity to earn service hours by participating. If you’re interested in participating, please contact Jayne Marie Alexander ’19 at [email protected]
