Thank You Michigan State University Child Life Organization for Spartan Students

Members of the MSU Child Life Organization volunteer in the pediatric wing at Sparrow Hospital. Through this work, the students have grown to love the Smith family from Dewitt, Michigan. According to MSU student Nicole Tanghe, "Andrew is a delightful young man and always has something to say that will make anyone smile." To honor Andrew, the student group organized a fundraiser for pediatric cancer research. The event featured an information booth, buffet, a silent auction, and children's games. Special guests included some current and former MSU football players. The students' efforts were wonderfully successful and Just One More Day is pleased to receive their generous donation.
