Stephen Lewis Secondary School Fundraiser for Selina

The Stephen Lewis Secondary School staff and students put their best fundraising efforts forward to help raise funds for one of their own during the month of May. 17-year-old student Selina Oung, who lives with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), is beloved among the student community. That love and support was more than evident during the school's Carnival Day, a way to boost fundraising efforts that saw funds raised through baked goods and other events in the weeks leading up to the carnival. HLH is a rare disorder of the immune system primarily affecting young infants and children, affecting Selina when she was in Grade 9. While the importance of raising awareness for HLH was at the forefront, the fundraising efforts were used to help Selina’s family purchase a wheelchair accessible van. There was plenty of support from local businesses and organizations as representatives from the school board, Knights of Columbus & Vaughan Fire were among those on hand.
