The Durfee Warriors have once again taken a stance to end cancer, more specifically leukemia and lymphoma. For the last three years, students at Durfee School have aggressively raised funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), through their “Pennies for Patients” program. These efforts started when one of their own, a Durfee alumnus named Hector Sanchez, was diagnosed with leukemia. Hector is now cancer-free, and the Durfee Warriors continue this philanthropic effort in his honor, and in memory of Bea Barney and Mr. Lindenmyer Bea Barney was a phenomenal teacher at Norwood School, and Mr. Lindenemyer was the beloved husband of Mrs. Lindenmeyer, a 4th grade teacher a Durfee School. Both lost their battle with leukemia a few year ago. In total Durfee students raised $5,276. Who say’s kids can’t make a difference?
