Score One for the Cure
Every 10 minutes, someone dies from a blood cancer. Incidence is nearly twice as high among African- Americans. In August of 2009 Ptosha Davis’ daughter Jori Lauren Leflore was diagnosed with AML Leukemia and admitted to Children’s Hospital of WI. Ptosha never left her side throughout Jori’s treatment. Jori died in February of 2010. She was 12 years old. The public is invited to Score One for the Cure on Thursday, April 14th at One Sports Bar, 1003 N. Old World Third Street from 5-8 p.m. Cost is $15 at the door and includes food and music by DJ Sherman. Proceeds from the event benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and fund research for blood cancers.
