As many of you know our wonderful Mrs. Marshall's 3 year old son, Dane was diagnosed with stage 4 Hepatoblastoma liver cancer with metastasis to his lungs last December. For those who are new to the school or not familiar with the Dane's story you can read Dane's story and/or subscribe to updates here:
The recent updates have been very difficult. Our George White community is strong and we believe that Mrs. Marshall and her family could really use all the love and support this community has to offer now more than ever.
DANE’S COMIC BOOK PROJECT
We met with some teachers and came up with a plan to show our support.
We are asking anybody who wants to show support to please have your child write draw a comic/funny picture for Dane to read on an INDEX CARD .
Please make sure they don’t include sad or get well messages , as the purpose of these is to distract Dane from his situation . But please feel free to put your name/child’s name on the back. We will then compile them into a book.
Our hearts are breaking for this sweet child and we would appreciate your help in brightening his day. Please have your student turn in their index card to the front office by this Wednesday, October 5, at 2 p.m . They will be delivered on Thursday.
