Elizabeth Ann Jorgensen, this year's Miss SwMi Teen 2017, is a junior at Eau Claire High School and taking classes at LMC. She's a runner, musician and active member of her youth group.  As Miss Teen 2017, Elizabeth has returned to her 6th grade experiences of seeing Miguel be stricken with Lukemia. She did fundraising and provide support for the family until he was in remission and returned to the 8th grade. That experience made her selection of children's cancer an easy choice for her platform. Her research showed that 250 children die each day from cancer. Many survive only to have recurrences later in life. Now she promotes Angels of Hope, ( 586.226.3146), a non-profit that helps families deal with childhood cancer.  Even the best health insurance leaves the family with many expenses, such and travel, hotels and meals. Angels of Hope is able to help.
