Local 5-year-old battles cancer; school collecting donations for child cancer patients
WEST VALLEY, Wash. – A local 5-year-old is facing cancer, head-on.
In honor of her, a school in West Valley is trying to collect kids’ items to donate to the hospital where she gets treatment.
Kindergarten teacher Jordan Lambert tells Action News Holley Cook has been fighting leukemia. Holley visits Seattle Children’s Hospital, once a month for chemotherapy.
For Holley and kids like her, Apple Valley Elementary School is holding a donation drive.
“She is super strong. She’s been fighting it for two years now, and went into remission which is great, and then unfortunately had a little bit of a relapse,” said Lambert.
Donations can be dropped off at Apple Valley Elementary till October 5th, when Holley and her family will take them to Children’s Hospital.
Wish List: markers and washable paint, crayons, colored pencils, water colors, infant rattles, Matchbox cars, books, DVDs, games, coloring books, and LEGOs.
