An 8th grader unearthed that rugged, shimmering diamond from me today. Rarely have I ever listened to a student speak and found myself so proud.
Eva, our student, delivered an assembly to the entire 8th grade about Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer.
It wasn't a research assignment for school. Eva's actions came from the heart because her beloved aunt, AnaMarisa is battling Sarcoma.
She has already raised over $2,000 in under two weeks of fundraising.
If you would, please watch both videos. It won't cost you anything other than a few minutes of time, but at the very least, Eva's message will reach another set of eyes and ears...and her goal of educating more people about this rare form of cancer will come true.
Of course, supporting Eva on her Facebook page or organizing a few teens to host or attend one of her make-up classes would also go a long toward fulfilling her ultimate dream of someday inspiring a cure.
Thank you for the taking the time to watch. I know many of you have children of your own, or friends, like Eva. I am sure you will see why I began this blog post with diamonds.
