|WNCAD: November 10th|
Additionally, one of my seniors who graduated last year delivered a presentation to her public speaking class at St. John's University on November 10th about carcinoid cancer, and had students from the course sign the WNCAD proclamation.
Overall, it was a tremendous student display of support and empathy - far from the lackadaisical, morally adrift stereotype many people have of today's teens.

NET Cancer Awareness Day Poem
by Selena Hart
Behind the trees, you hear them.
A soft pat against the dirt
a calm stride to the pool of blue.
You picture a strong, bold steed
a mane of gold, a sandy body.
You ready yourself to tame it.
To saddle it and ride away.
You breathe in, and push through the trees.
Stunningly enough, the mane you saw as gold
is black as coal.
His sandy body is quite the contrast,
stripes as black as ash and white as snow.
Your shock has stunned him too.
As he runs, you learn something new.
The next time you hear hooves,
it could be a zebra.
