Lily, cancer survivor, is celebrated in Brentwood

On Friday, September 21, our school family gathered in the gym to celebrate “Lily” day in the cities of Rock Hill and Brentwood. Lily, who is in our Pre-K 4 classroom has successfully fought leukemia for the last thirty-four months. Make-a-Wish Foundation has granted Lily’s wish in celebration of her doing so well and has sent her and her family to Disney World.

Keith Rawlings from “Youth in Action” has spear-headed the funding for Lily’s trip. Keith and the mayors of Brentwood and Rock Hill attended our celebration and presented Lily with a proclamation. McArthur’s Bakery generously donated Disney cupcakes for the entire school for our event. The children in Lily’s class dressed in princess and super hero outfits to support their friend/classmate.

Lily and her family were so excited for their trip. We are asking all to keep Lily in your prayers for her continued good health. “Youth in Action” is sponsoring a “Lily Fun Fair” on October 6, at Saint Mary Magdalen from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. All are invited.
