Students of the Princeton Day School (PDS) Class of 2015 should be proud of all their achievements. Amid the excitement of preparing for the next phase in their lives, these impressive students took time to think of others, in particular, those affected by cancer. The PDS 2015 senior class expressed their desire to support caregivers and patients, as they have experienced the toll cancer takes on families and the community as a whole.
Led by Caroline Lippman, 2015 Senior Class Gift Chair, the Class of 2015 marked the milestone of graduating from high school by making a donation of $7,300 to the Edward & Marie Matthews Center for Cancer Care at the University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP). This contribution will fund a Caregivers Support Group at UMCP. A plaque to be installed in the Matthews Center will read “Given by Princeton Day School Class of 2015 in honor of members of the PDS community who have battled or lost a loved one to cancer.”
The Princeton HealthCare System Foundation and Matthews Center for Cancer Care are thankful to receive this generous gift and wish these young PDS philanthropists the best of luck.
