Flapjack Fundraiser Set for Ailing MTHS Student

Fundraiser set for Saturday, Feb. 25 at Manchester Applebee's

Residents are being asked to rally this Saturday for a Hawk who is battling cancer.

A flapjack fundraiser for Trevor Martin, a sophomore at Manchester Township High School who was diagnosed two weeks ago with acute myelogenous leukemia, will be held Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Manchester Applebee's from 8 to 10 a.m.

A Hawks basketball player who wears number 32, Martin is receiving chemotherapy treatment for the cancer — which affects blood and bone marrow — at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, said English teacher Jill Ocone.

For $10, a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs and beverage will be provided. Tickets can be purchased by contacting high school vice principal Evelyn Swift or boys head basketball coach Ryan Ramsay at 732-657-2121. Those who cannot attend the breakfast are welcome to make a donation.

The boys basketball team will also hold fundraisers during all lunch periods, according to an email circulated by Ramsay. Students and staff can place a donation into a can featuring the face of a team member; the top five earners will dye their hair orange to raise awareness of leukemia, while the bottom five will shave their heads.

"I encourage you to spread the word about this chance to help the Martin family," Ramsay said in the email message.

I thank God every day for the health and well being of my children. You just never know what can happen. During these difficult times please reach into your hearts and give the support the Martin family needs right now. Any donation makes a difference!
