Local High School Student Inspires with Buzzies for CHOA

 Elizabeth McCall, a rising senior at Marist School, is organizing a fundraiser to help children with cancer or other blood disorders. She has partnered with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s (CHOA) Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorder Center to donate pain-relieving Buzzies to help children in need.
Elizabeth’s passion for STEM and community has made her want to help children feel better when they get necessary injections and IVs. Buzzies are handheld devices that act as massagers to minimize sharp pain naturally and quickly (50-80%) from needle sticks like blood draws and finger pricks. Many children at the Center experience this type of medical treatment, and Elizabeth wants to help alleviate as much pain as possible for CHOA’s patients.


However, Buzzies are expensive and outside of CHOA’s budget. Elizabeth’s goal is to raise $2500 to donate as many Buzzies as possible to help as many children as possible. No matter the amount, every donation will directly benefit CHOA’s pediatric patients with cancer or blood disorders.
