Children’s Cancer Center Knead for Knowledge Award

It was a truly incredible night for the Children’s Cancer Center as the Covelli Family Panera Bread ‘Knead for Knowledge’ Scholarship Dinner took place at Mainsail Suites Hotel & Conference Center. Levy’s President and CEO, Michele Adams, accepted an award for support and sponsorship of this new program that is granting $ 65,000.00 in higher education scholarship to the Children’s Cancer Center.

“The Children’s Cancer is helping children and families cope.” That is the mission of the Children’s Cancer Center, a local non-profit organization dedicated to serving Tampa Bay families of children with cancer or chronic blood disorders. “When a child is diagnosed, the whole family is diagnosed,” explains Children’s Cancer Center C.O.O., Patty O’Leary. “Our mission is to provide these children and their families with the educational, emotional and financial relief necessary to cope with the illnesses which threaten to tear their lives apart.” With 22 programs and services currently helping over 950 families, support is offered to all members of the family and is available throughout every step of their difficult journey – from diagnosis and treatment, to survivorship . . . and sadly, too often, bereavement. While other organizations are committed to finding a cure tomorrow, the Children’s Cancer Center is committed to helping families cope today. They are dedicated solely to being there for each family through this devastating experience.
