James Edwards

Oklahoma

James Edwards, Bishop Kelley High School, Tulsa, was recognized for "The Kelley Connection...for kids with cancer." James, himself a cancer patient, started the organization after discovering the loneliness and fear felt by young cancer patients. Through his program, high school students serve as big brothers or big sisters to young children with cancer. The volunteers are trained extensively by oncology social workers and hospital staff.
