Pajamas are the battle uniform of kids with cancer. Stuck in the hospital for long periods of time during treatment, these children live in their pajamas while fighting for their life. PJammin is a way to raise awareness about childhood cancer and to help them feel less alone. Mu Alpha Theta would like to invite the Decatur community to join us in PJammin for Kids with Cancer TOMORROW, November 21st. This year, Mu Alpha Theta is hosting PJammin in honor of our very own Brian Herbert, a current Decatur Junior, who is currently battling cancer.

Teachers and staff that choose to participate may make their donation in the morning to Mary Candeloro in D149. All students can make their donation during all lunch shifts! Participants must donate in order to wear pajamas, the “official uniform of childhood cancer”. There will be small prizes for those that donate on Tuesday and any donation will be accepted! Mu Alpha Theta will be donating all funds raised on November 21st to the American Childhood Cancer Organization.
