(Page 2 - Previous Page)We encourage our students to continue their connection to their mitzvah project through their high school years. One of the ways Temple Emanuel students maintain this connection is through MATCH (Money and Teenagers Creating Hope), our teen philanthropy foundation -- among the recipients of MATCH grants over the past few years has been Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Pancreatic Cancer Fight
My husband has also had pancreatic cancer for five years ("Funding Shortage and Ignorance Hurt Pancreatic Cancer Fight," March 2). This is an awful cancer that came into our house and lived here with us. It doesn't have a heart. It sits within our lives, our children's, our friends, our neighbors, our family and extended family's lives. And now to read that it may show up again in our family is more than we can fathom.
Please, when making a donation to the cancer foundation, mark it for Pancreatic Cancer research. Help to fight this cancer.
