A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO RECOGNIZE THE WORK AND CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE STAFF AND PATIENTS OF THE ADOLESCENT CANCER SUPPORT GROUP "LASTING IMPRESSIONS" DURING THEIR TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION AND TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE LASTING IMPRESSIONS PROGRAM DURING THE PAST TEN YEARS AND TO DESIGNATE SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1996, AS "LASTING IMPRESSIONS DAY".

Whereas, the number of young South Carolinians affected by cancer necessitates the need for continuing development of support groups and therapy programs to assist these young patients in coping with a difficult situation; and

Whereas, the crisis caused by a diagnosis of cancer can be lessened through therapeutic activities and support from other cancer patients; and

Whereas, The Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders of Richland Memorial Hospital is responsible for the treatment and care of adolescents with cancer and realizes that the problems and uncertainties of youth are further compounded by a diagnosis of cancer; and

Whereas, The LASTING IMPRESSIONS Support Group was developed by the Center and designed to provide an environment where adolescents can face the crisis of a cancer diagnosis and help each other deal with the problems and fears associated with cancer as well as discuss the other issues ordinarily faced by adolescents; and

Whereas, since its inception in November 1985, adolescents have received assistance in crisis resolution, community reentry, and support for long term adjustment; and

Whereas, both current and former members of The LASTING IMPRESSIONS Support Group personify the spirit of altruism, hope, and courage which should be emulated by all South Carolinians. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:

That Saturday, January 27, 1996, is designated as "LASTING IMPRESSIONS Day" in South Carolina.

Be it further resolved that the General Assembly extends to the members and supporters of The LASTING IMPRESSIONS Support Group its sincere wishes for continued success in its constructive and compassionate efforts on behalf of adolescents with cancer.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders of Richland Memorial Hospital.
