Science Research Class Supports BBCC


Freddy Nocella, Contributing Writer

Recently Ms.Birone’s 9th grade Science Research Class had the opportunity to work with the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition by determining how funds raised by the organization should be used for cancer research.  After the class was given proposals by cancer researchers at Stony Brook University Hospital, everyone read, discussed, and voted on which researcher/ proposal should receive the earmarked funds from the BBCC.  The class then had the chance to go to Stony Brook Hospital to speak with world-renowned researchers.  Everyone took a private tour of the laboratories and saw “first-hand” what is happening locally regarding cancer research.  At the end of the day the class handed Mr. Cao, the doctor/ researcher that we had selected, the grant check from the BBCC
