  • University of Florida students and faculty can help lift the day of young cancer patients during the holidays by decorating cards that will be sent to hospitals around the country.
    Friends for Life of America, an organization founded by a UF student, is asking students to stop by tables set up at Turlington Plaza and the Reitz Union Colonnade to make cards. The event is dubbed, "Hearts for the Holidays."
    The group provides all art supplies needed and the tables will be open through Friday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
    Last year, Friends for Life sent out about 7,500 cards.
    "Hearts for the Holidays gives UF students and faculty the opportunity to brighten the lives of children hospitalized during the holidays," said Megan Crosmer, co-chairwoman of the event.
