After fourteen years since taking her first GED test, Mona's persistence paid off. She is an example of adult persistence, which is defined as adults staying in programs as long as they can, engaging in self-study when they must drop out of their programs, and returning to a program as soon as the demands of their lives allow. Mona dropped out of high school in 1989 to get married. She then began to have children and raise a family. In 1993 and 1994, she took the GED tests but did not pass the complete battery. When one of her daughters developed a health problem, Mona lost interest in pursuing her GED. Life continued for eleven years, and Mona returned to an adult education class in Dec- ember 2005. Her children were in school, and she wanted to set a good example for them by attaining her high school cre- dential. In those past eleven years, the GED Tests had changed; there was a newer version Of the GED Tests, which meant that Mona would have to retest in all five subject areas. Mona tested again in late 2005 and early 2006 but couldn't pass all five tests and earn the points necessary to complete This determined lady with Cancer. Project ASK is the ses.

It had Mona Deel been a long journey for Mona, but she had finally fulfilled this important goal in her life. One of Mona's personal aspirations was to earn her GED this school year and be able to graduate the same year as her oldest daughter. She did it! Mona says that she had a lot of cheerleaders along the way- her teacher Wanda Lawson, her family, her boss, and her friends at work. These people made her believe she could do it. Mona's persistence paid oft Mona currently works part- time at the Cumberland Moun- tain Group Home as a resi- dential tech, who helps people with disabilities perform daily life skills.

As many as 350 children with cancer-related diseases are at the Medical college of Virginia at any given time. Cancer is the number one cause of death for children between the ages of three and 14. The average length of treatment for child- hood cancer is two years. ASK's Child Life Program strives to provide for the child as many normal life experiences as possible during treatment and offers opportunities for cancer patients and their families to forget about their disease and enjoy life. Activities for cancer patients and their families are coordinated by the Project ASK team at MTV. A Chaplain, Life Therapist and Nurse Practition- ers are provided by Project ASK. The Chaplain ministers to the young patients and their families from the time that they are first informed of the diagnosis. The Chaplain provides not only counseling, but also spiritual Bluegrass Circle at scholarships to qualified survi- vors of childhood cancer. This is to help offset the rmancial burden of costs incurred during cancer treatment and therapy. The Castlewood High School Chapter of FBLA invites you to participate in Project ASK. Club members encourage you to educate others on childhood cancer and to make donations to this worthwhile cause. All dona- tions will be used by Project ASK to treat local cancer patients.
