Girl battling bone cancer looks to give back

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- The past year has been a challenge for fourth-grader Brooklyn Cowsill. She's been battling Ewing's Sarcoma bone cancer.

She returned to school full-time at Vermillion Elementary School in Maize, Kansas this year with the idea of giving back to other families affected by childhood cancer.

On Sept. 23, Cowsill's school will have a hat day. Fellow students at Vermillion Elementary can wear a hat for a dollar donation. The money will go toward helping families pay for meals while children are going through Chemotherapy.

"All of the cancer kids have to get food and they already pay so much for chemo. So, we figured we'd get a bunch of coupons to the places near Wesley (Medical Center in Wichita) so the parents can go get the food while their kids are getting chemo," Cowsill said.

If your children don't go to Vermillion Elementary, but you'd like to help Cowsill, there are ways to do so. Cowsill has put together a
YouCaring page. You can also follow Cowsill's jounrey on her
Facebook page.
