On January 25, 2012, thirteen year old Clarissa was diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, a non-cancerous, but very dangerous brain tumor. She had to undergo three surgeries and six weeks of radiation. Though Clarissa still has a challenging road ahead of her, she has made it her dream to give back to other children in the hospital. Clarissa explained that the arts and craft items she received while in the pediatric intensive care unit helped her get through the difficult times she faced. It is "Clarissa's Dream" to collected donation items and take them to children who are in similar situations. She wants nothing more than to make a difference in the lives of other children. As an organization, Child and Adolescent Studies Student Association at California State University, Fullerton would like to help Clarissa how ever we can. We are asking for donations of crayons, markers, colored pencils, coloring books, word search books, games, books, movies, paints, and additional arts and craft supplies. These donations will go straight to "Clarissa's Dream" who will then donate the supplies to various hospitals. For more information, please contact Sabrina Mercer at
