Student reaches out to those facing cancer

MUNSTER — Wilbur Wright Middle School 7th Grader Evan Zarowny is shown here with his mitzvah advisor Nancy Feldman, M.S.W., C.S.W. For five months Zarowny, 13, baked sweets weekly and brought them as refreshments for the cancer patients and their loved ones in two support groups that meet at the Cancer Resource Centre in Munster. Zarowny’s efforts to help others were completed as part of his bar mitzvah preparation culminating in his bar mitzvah at Congregation Beth Israel this November.
