A small miracle: Condit student leads charge against cancer

Eureka restaurant, located at 580 W. First St. in Claremont, will host a Dining for a Cause fundraiser on Monday, August 25 beginning at 5:30 p.m.

During this event, a portion of your bill will be donated to Team Jazzy, a group of dedicated followers who support cancer survivor Jasmine Lyn, a second grader at Condit Elementary School. Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at age 3, Jasmine has been an active member of the leukemia lymphoma society (LLS) after undergoing more than two years of extensive treatment. Team Jazzy made its debut in Anaheim at a Light the Night walk event in September 2012, gathering a grand total of  $12,275 in donations for LLS and an army of 75 members to help fight cancer.

In the coming weeks, residents will be given two more opportunities to support Jasmine and the fight against blood cancer. The first event will occur in September and will be a month-long promotion of an LLS sundae created by Team Jazzy at all statewide Farrell’s locations. If you wish to participate, the nearest Farrell’s is located at 10742 E. Foothill Blvd. in Rancho Cucamonga.

This event will shortly be followed by the Light the Night walk, located at Angel Stadium at 2000 Gene Autry Way in Anaheim, which is scheduled to take place Sunday, September 27 at 4 p.m. For more information visit www.LightTheNight.org and search for Anaheim under the “Find Local Walker” tab.
