Peer Mentoring Class Helps Send Hayley to the Dream Village!
Melissa Zientara’s Peer Mentoring class was mentioned in the Sunshine Foundation newsletter! They raised $700 in memory of Seth Cook to donate to the Sunshine Foundation. The donation helped to send a little girl to Disney in Orlando! Seth Cook was a boy with progeria who died 2 years ago. Melissa shows a DATELINE episode that features Seth Cook and progeria each year to her Peer Mentoring class. They raise money for the progeria reunion in Seth's memory, but the reunion was cancelled this year. So instead, the Sunshine Foundation matched the class with a local little girl who was terminally ill so that they could help make her "dream" come true.
