Date:4/14/2009

Proceeds from "Kendall Kollection" benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- When Jacqueline Savage McFee, a designer of popular trendy school and office fashion products, got the devastating news that her two-year-old cousin, Kendall Sierens, was diagnosed with leukemia, it brought things into perspective for her. It also created a spark. The Kendall Kollection -- a collection of colorful high-end school supplies inspired by the artist's young cousin -- was born in 2008 and has been raising funds and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

"Jackie's dynamic designs have been drawing attention for several years now," said Nancy L. Klein, LLS's chief marketing and revenue officer.
