September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Many pediatric cancer organizations have online campaigns and events this month to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

Families, caregivers, charities and research groups across the United States observe September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In the U.S., 15,780 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year; approximately 1/4 of them will not survive the disease. A diagnosis turns the lives of the entire family upside down. The objective of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to put a spotlight on the types of cancer that largely affect children, survivorship issues, and – importantly – to help raise funds for research and family support.

During the month, we urge you to try and raise awareness concerning Childhood Cancer and perhaps consider donating. The donations made could help to fund research for childhood cancer, or support groups for patients and their families, among many other things. Any donation made can be very beneficial.

Please see below a few organizations for our (POB) children who have passed due to this terrible disease and the foundations that have been set up in their names to help fight back and find a cure.

 The Smiles For Scott Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization established to honor the life and memory of Scott Loeb, the son of Debbie and Larry Loeb.  Scott passed away in 2005 from medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer, at the age of 5.  The objective of the Foundation is to raise funds to enhance the care and lives of children afflicted with cancer.  The Foundation was named in recognition of Scott’s contagious smile. 

Soon after Scott’s passing in October 2005, Debbie, Larry as well as several family members and friends decided that something positive had to come out of this tragic experience.

 

Jordan's Footsteps, The Jordan Abramowitz Memorial Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. This foundation was established to honor the life and memory of Jordan Abramowitz, who passed away, at the young age of 16, after a courageous battle with brain cancer. As a foundation, we are dedicated to following in Jordan's Footsteps marching forward with the same courage, compassion and commitment that Jordan exhibited throughout his life.

The foundation’s goal is to raise money to provide quality care and comfort to children diagnosed with brain tumors who are undergoing treatment. In addition to the medical aspect of treatment, we hope to provide a happier environment for children, by providing activities (and distractions to the treatment they are receiving) such as laptops, game systems, DVD players and live entertainment. The organization is also dedicated to funding cancer research at hospitals with the hope of one day finding a cure.

 

A charity benefiting children with cancer and their families.

  


 

 
 
 

Soccer may not be as popular in America as it is in the rest of the world, but it is alive and well on Long Island. Want proof? The most hotly contested categories on the program year after year in the annual "Best of Long Island" issue for the Long Island Press is none other than which town has the best soccer club.

 

Each year from October 1st through December 15th voting is open for Best of Long Island. During this 75 day window, everyone can vote for whatever local store, restaurant, business or person they feel should hold the top spot in that category.

 

We are very proud to announce that the Plainview Old Bethpage Soccer Club has finished for the third year in a row in the top three of soccer organizations on Long Island. For 2013 POBSC finished #3 soccer club on Long Island.

 

The decision to focus on the development of ALL children, no matter what their skill level, shows that the direction of POBSC is right on. The success of our Club is based on providing support for all our teams, who compete at various levels of soccer throughout Long Island and with the Northeast region.  Our Club’s focus is on being inclusive, increasing participation at all levels and ensuring that players develop a passion and love for the game so that they walk off the field with similes on their face.

 

This cannot have been accomplished without all of the children who participate (over 1,400 strong), the parents who help support the club, the coaches who volunteer their time, our sponsors, support from the POB school district and the board members who work 12 months out of the year to keep it all running as smoothly and successfully as it does.

 

Again this is something that WE all should be very proud of and not take for granted. This just proves that not only is soccer alive and well on Long Island, BUT alive and doing VERY well here in Plainview Old Bethpage.

 

Congratulations to us all
