OUC to collect 1,000 valentines for 5-year-old cancer patient


Ohio University Chillicothe faculty, staff and students are working to meet their goal of collecting 1,000 valentines for 5-year-old Timmy Nelson, son of OUC student Cassandra Nelson before Valentine's Day.


Timmy was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and will be undergoing treatments over the course of the next nine months, causing him to miss his first Valentine’s Day celebration with his kindergarten classmates in Waverly.

OUC is seeking help from our supportive community to help us reach this goal. If you or someone you know would like to send Timmy a valentine, you can do so by sending it to: Ohio University Chillicothe Child Development Center Attn: Jamie Harmount, 101 University Drive Chillicothe, Ohio 45601.

Monetary donations as well as gift and gas card are also being accepted. Additionally, a GoFundMe page has been established at https://www.gofundme.com/3av5vwo. Contact harmount@ohio.edu for more information.
