Ecole Bilingue Students Brighten Spirits of Touro Cancer Center Patients

Sixth and 7th graders from Ecole Bilingue de la Nouvelle-Orléans visited Touro March 8, 2013, to deliver hand-crocheted hats and scarves for Touro Cancer Center patients. The students worked for months on special crochet projects and hand made notes of encouragement, learning the importance of giving back to their community.

This project had special meaning for the students, as one of their teachers battled lymphoma last year and was treated at Touro. “The students had a personal connection with her,” said teacher Katy Ancelet. “They were able to see her fight through her treatment and come out of it victorious, all the while staying positive and strong.”

The students presented their beautiful caps and scarves to a group of current and former cancer center patients in the Medical Staff Library. Following the reception, the group toured the infusion and radiation departments where they learned how health care professionals work daily to diagnose and treat cancer.
