MGSOSA Northeast Youth & The American Cancer Society Fundraiser

On Saturday May 19th, 2012, youth members of Northeast America MGSOSA joined American Cancer Society in an event called Relay for Life. This was a fundraiser event for Cancer Research and public awareness. The event was held at Lynbrook Middle School, New York from 5-11pm. Over $1,000USD was collected by the members of MGSOSA. This year, MGSOSA participated in this event in honor of Sam Arikupurathu, who is an MGSOSA youth member from our St. Peters and St. Pauls JSO Church, Massapequa, NY. Sam has been battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia since March, 2009. Event started with special prayers led by Rev. Dn. Joel Jacob at St. Mary's JSO Church, Lynbrook, NY.  MGSOSA advisors humbly request that everyone continue to keep Sam in your prayers.  He is awaiting a Bone Marrow transplant as soon as he recovers from his Chemo therapy.
