10-year-old Roslyn boy raises $3,000 for Breast Cancer Initiative Fund at Northwell Health
Max Levine raised $3,000 for the Breast Cancer Initiative Fund at Northwell Health.
The now 10-year-old was only 8 when his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer
She survived but watching her go through treatment motivated him to help other families dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
The Roslyn child sold decals with his school's logo on them in 2021 and made $2,000 for Northwell Health.
He then decided to sell tennis racquet dampeners.
He presented a check to the hospital and told News 12 he is excited to hear about the new group he says the money will be used for.
"A bunch of highly professional nurses will immediately care for those diagnoses with breast cancer so they have somebody to support them throughout the entire process, which is amazing," Levine says.
He plans on doing it again next year for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and hopes to raise $4,000.
