An Entire School Welcomed Back An Eight-Year-Old Who's Been Fighting Cancer

January 12, 2018

An eight-year-old girl in Massachusetts missed 15 months of school after she was diagnosed with leukemia back in 2016.  And when she finally returned last week, over 150 students and parents were waiting outside to welcome her back.  

A bunch of kids walked with her from her house nearby.  Then when they got closer, more than 100 other students and parents were waiting outside the school, holding up signs and giving her high-fives while she walked past them.

When her parents saw how big the crowd was, they actually got worried it might be too much for her, and she'd be embarrassed. 

But then she threw her arms up in the air and they knew she was okay.
