In the midst of finals and the chaos of the end of the semester, Winona State University sophomore Alyssa Koenig has taken a class project beyond writing a paper to help a 12-year-old boy with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.
Mighty-Max Low from Neola, Iowa, has been battling the disease since he was in kindergarten. His only request? To receive one million get-well letters or cards by July.
Koenig began by spreading the word on campus about Max’s plight and his request. She has now planned an event to join people together in creating cards and letters.
