Fighting The Odds—Albion students rally in support of staff member

International students at Albion College are working in support of Sherri Lang, the administrative secretary for the Center of International Education, to relieve her wallet from a medical bill.

Lang was unfortunately diagnosed with leukemia and will have a bone marrow transplant by the end of the semester. Students are working to earn money to offset the medical bill by fundraising.

“Although she’s going through chemotherapy at the moment, she still needs to work to pay off her medication,” said Georgiana Inggrid, Indonesia first-year. “She already helped international students so much, and we feel we have to do our best to help her.”

Sandra Myint, Yugon, Myanmar first-year, came up with the idea to raise money for Sherri’s medical bill. “So far, some faculty members and some international students have hosted a bake sale that took place last Thursday; it went pretty well,” Myint said.

So far, there are seven people planning the events for Lang. Their next fundraising event is a cultural fashion extravaganza set for April 11 in the Kellogg Center from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
