NEW YORK -- Laura Vargas of San Antonio has been selected as a winner of the “Ouchies for Others” Pediatric Cancer Bandage Art Contest. As a winner, Laura will have the opportunity to see her original design made into an Ouchies bandage, which will be available nationwide beginning this summer. Laura is one of five children whose bandage designs will be featured in a new line of Ouchies bandages called “Fight Against Pediatric Cancer” -- with profits from sales of these unique bandages going to two children’s cancer organizations.

Laura is 10 years old and is a cancer survivor. After being diagnosed at age 4, she is “thrilled to have won and to be able to help support other children by being a part of this cause.” Laura’s winning entry is titled “You Can Be Pain Free.” She said, “I wanted to do this because I had cancer myself so I wanted other kids not to let themselves down and show them that you can have fun during cancer treatment and never give your hopes up and look cool with my bandage.”
