T-Shirts sold, supporting Partsch

Jessica Hogan

Biology teacher Heather Partsch was recently diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer that has a high cure rate with chemotherapy. From Monday Mar. 11 through Wednesday Mar. 13, Jessica Hogan and Shawna Myers will be selling t-shirts for $10 in support of research for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. 

“I would do t-shirts for anybody in the situation Mrs. Partsch is in, but the reason that we’re doing it is to raise money for the lymphoma research that could be done to help people like Mrs. Partsch, who is one of my dear friends,” Hogan said. 

All order forms are to be turned in by the end of the day Wed. Mar. 13 to Myers in room A321 or to Hogan in room B318. Students are invited to wear them on Mar. 28 to show Partsch support as she fights cancer.
