Tigers With Purpose is looking to raise awareness about the Fight for Five movement. 

The LSU campus student group will visit the New Orleans Children’s Hospital on February 27, at 1:00 p.m.

According to Josie Bonnette, Bateman PRSSA Media Relations Director, the student group will create an art piece that aims to educate the public about the Fight for Five movement.

Children’s Hospital Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders staff members and patients will add their handprint to canvases, some of which will be donated to the hospital. 

Bonnette said, “Tigers with Purpose started this movement to raise awareness of With Purpose, a nonprofit organization that advocates for and helps fund pediatric cancer research and treatments.”

According to Bonnette, one in five children diagnosed with cancer will not survive. 

“It’s a great opportunity to form a closer relationship with students at Louisiana’s flagship educational institution as we all work together to tell our story and the stories of what we do for children every day,” said Dr. Raymond Watts, LSU Medical School New Orleans Head of Department of Pediatrics.”
