 Holy Family CYO Car Wash Vs Cancer

On May 15, 2016 (rain date is May 22), Holy Family CYO will host its ninth annual Car Wash Vs Cancer. The car wash will be held at Holy Family School, in Hicksville, from 830am-1pm.Proceeds from the car wash will be donated to Alex Wallace's parents to help defray Alex's medical expenses.
Alex Wallace, a 12 year old, is a sixth grader at Hicksville Middle School. In
December 2015, Alex was diagnosed with leukemia and has begun
chemotherapy treatments. Unfortunately, the chemotherapy has suppressed Alex's immune system, allowing a fungal infection to develop in his sinuses. The infection has had devastating consequences, necessitating multiple surgeries to remove some of Alex's teeth, part of his palate and an eye.
Alex and his family have confronted this adversity with tremendous
courage. But we as a community have an opportunity to let the Wallace's
know that they are not alone in this fight. You can demonstrate your
love and support for the Wallace family by attending our car wash, by
volunteering to wash cars or by making a donation.
Checks may be made payable to Michael Wallace and mailed to Ed Hebron 2
Mitchell Court Hicksville NY 11801.

Holy Family CYO seeks to enrich the mind, body and spirit of our youth by fostering discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, good health and charitable works. Each year over 400 children participate in our programs which include basketball, volleyball, swimming and track. In addition, over 30 adults volunteer their time and talents as coaches. Children are encouraged to and given the opportunity to give back to their community in a number of ways from volunteering at special Olympics, feeding and clothing the homeless and raising money for children battling cancer. They learn the importance of volunteerism, which pays dividends in our community for years to come.
