A fellow student here at Davidson Middle School – 8th-grader Reese Frazier – was diagnosed last fall with a rare form of childhood cancer, Ewing Sarcoma.
Since then, Reese has had to go through chemotherapy, many surgeries, radiation treatment, rib replacements and getting her Pneumothorax removed.
Throughout all of this Reese has continued to look forward to the small things in life, like simple movie nights or running normally again.
Reese enjoys watching movies and going to the beach. She also likes popcorn and blankets. Despite everything, she still has a smile on her face and a positive attitude.
Here at Davidson, we are trying to support her as much as we can with our love.
Davidson Student Council, led by Kristy Vilardi and Barbara Engstrom-McGraw, held a Ribbons for Reese fundraiser.
Yellow ribbons were sold by students at lunch and we hung them in the trees in front of our school to show our support for her.
On Friday, April 9, the whole school, in-person and remote learners alike, wore yellow to show that we are all Titan Strong for her.
Reese is an amazing person, a great friend, a wonderful student and a fighter.
We know that Reese is going through a very challenging time right now and we want to help her as much as we can.
We have tried to support her and her mom by hosting this fundraiser here at Davidson. The wonderful staff here has been keeping in touch with her everyday; they have made it easier for Reese to still learn when she can.
She still has a long road to go but we will all be here to support her however we can.
