School helps cancer teens
BLUE HILLS College supported of two of its own with a CanTeen Bandanna Day held last Friday.
Student body spokeswoman Rachel McKenna said the school wanted to support all young people dealing with cancer.
"Four years ago one of the high school students lost her brother to cancer and we're supporting her through Bandanna Day," Rachel said.
"With cancer in my family, I was happy to help raise the $550 to financially support young people affected by cancer so they can enjoy camps with their peers.
"We're pretty happy as a small school to have raised this amount and we know it will go to help others - that's important. I'd love to see all schools get on board."
Fellow student Georgia Heapy said she was supporting a friend who survived leukemia.
"My friend is in remission but Bandanna Day always makes me think about what she went through," Georgia said.
