Support for Serena Tirado

Serena Tirado is a beloved Staples High School teacher who ushered many grateful students through biology, building within many of them a lifelong passion for the sciences. Last fall Serena began treatment for breast cancer. Fortunately, Serena is a born fighter who continues to bravely battle cancer and its aftermath. While Serena is private about the toll this struggle has taken on her and her family, the costs of the medical treatment and lost income present very real and difficult obstacles. She desperately needs our help!

Every day she taught, Serena gave all she had to her students and our community. It is our turn to give back to her. Please do what you can for this special teacher, who is beautiful both inside and out.

Give what you can and pass on the word!!! Every gift is deeply appreciated.
