LUXTON SCHOOL FUNDRAISER
In May, 2012, MSC Pediatric & Parent Support Leader Delina Rissin, in conjunction with her daughter's elementary school in Winnipeg, Manitoba, hosted a fundraiser to support Mastocytosis Society Canada. It was our first major fundraiser and it was a great success. We are deeply grateful to Delina Rissin, her family, Luxton School, and everyone who worked hard over an entire year to arrange and then host this event. They did a fanatastic job!
Delina prepared and circulated this article to raise awareness of mastocytosis and how it impacts her daughter. They also created an online website of auction items for the fundraiser.
This proceeds from this fundraiser will enable MSC to develop a Safe at School & Emergency Response Guide for schools and teachers across Canada to help their students who have mastocytosis. Luxton School has designed an innovative method which needs to be shared with all schools in Canada for all ages of children and teens with mastocytosis. This educational support guide will be distributed freely to parents of children with mastocytosis, their schools throughout Canada, and physicians treating children with this disorder. For children with mastocytosis, attending school is a very complicated process. The guide will help parents and schools in Canada to learn how to help their children remain with their peers and enjoy a normal educational life and experience at school. It will also teach educators how to handle emergency health situations specific to mastocytosis, and accommodate their students to ensure they learn effectively.
