Nova Medical Centers Announces Support in the “Students of the Year” Campaign

Houston, Texas (February 4, 2020) – Nova Medical Centers is announcing our support for Ellie Fetner, a teen-aged survivor who wants to make a difference through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society “Students of the Year” program!

In May of 2015, Ellie was 11 years old and was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  She spent the next 2 ½ years in treatment.  At such a young age, she endured isolation, countless blood transfusions, spinal taps, and countless medical symptoms.  But after 858 days of treatment, she beat cancer!  Now, at 16 years old, she wishes to continue the fight for others who are going through what she went through.

 “We, at Nova Medical Centers, are proud to support LLS and choose Ellie as our Student of the Year candidate,” said Bruce Meymand, Chief Operating Officer. “Ellie is a remarkable young lady who has not only overcome tremendous adversity; but also chooses to look beyond herself and make a difference in ending the suffering of others caused by blood cancers.”

You can make a difference too in the lives of others with Leukemia, Lymphoma, and other blood cancers by supporting Ellie in her mission.  Visit to learn more about Ellie and to donate!
