Anthem LemonAid registration now open


Every week, a child is diagnosed with cancer in Central Virginia. In June 2015, Caroline Morris was one of them. Since then, she has been undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer, at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

Morris now only requires monthly visits to CHoR and is scheduled to be finished with her active treatment in August.
