After beating leukemia last year, Brasen VonMoose-Lemin, a second-grader at George Cromwell Elementary, continues to raise money for the hospital that helped him get well.
The arrangements are in place. The ring-toss board is built. The signs are made. The entertainment is booked. Now all 8-year-old Brasen VonMoose-Lemin has left to do Saturday is spend his $4 on games. "I want [my classmates] to know that leukemia's hard to go through," Brasen said. The George Cromwell second-grader is hosting a fundraiser at his school Saturday to raise money for the hospital that helped him get well. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Brasen—whose name means God's gift, his mother Cherie VonMoose-Lemin said—was diagnosed with leukemia in 2008 and treated at the University of Maryland Children's Hospital.

The St. Philip Neri community rallied around Jacob Schwaab who recently was diagnosed with leukemia.
When 11-year-old Jacob Schwaab was diagnosed with leukemia last month, he admits he was a little scared. “I didn’t think it was going to turn out well. But it did,” he said. Jacob, a fifth grader at St. Philip Neri School in Linthicum, recently went through about a month of chemotherapy and he and his family are waiting to find out what the next steps will be. The month has been rough on his family, including his mother Chris Schwaab, who works as a secretary at St. Philip Neri. “Not only is your child sick and you’re terrified, [but] you don’t know the future,” she said. “They can’t decide what the next treatment is until they find out what the last treatment did.” When the St. Philip Neri community learned about Jacob’s diagnosis, they …
