A 14-year-old Shelbyville student once diagnosed with cancer has gained tons of support from her community. Her teachers have helped her family with medical bills and transportation to Riley Children's Hospital.
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. – Teachers in Shelbyville have begun camping out on a school bus for a cause this week.
Kiara Lee, 14, was diagnosed with Leukemia last month, and teachers wanted to help her family any way possible.
Teachers will raise $100 for every 1 hour they remain on the bus. The money will go toward Lee’s medical bills and transportation to Riley Children’s Hospital.
After just one month of chemotherapy, Lee is in remission, but she must undergo chemotherapy every week for two-and-a-half years to ensure it will not return.
More than $2,800 has been raised.
