Proceeds Benefit: Cori White
Cori is a vibrant 12 year old O'Fallon 7th grader. She enjoys riding horses, Cardinals baseball, taking part in Civil Air Patrol, playing the flute in the school band, and hanging out with friends. In March of this year she found a small lump near her collar bone. By May, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She has undergone several rounds of chemotherapy and after recent scans, it was determined she will have to continue with stronger treatments and possible radiation to follow. Although this has been a tough road for her, her spirit remains strong, even when she is unable to do the things she used to do. She continues to go to school and participate in any activities she's able to. She has maintained a remarkable attitude throughout this fight and continues to be an inspiration for her family, friends, and all who have the opportunity to meet her. Cori hopes to be able to provide support to other kids going through the battle with cancer by sharing her story. She has recently written a song with an organization called Maryville Kids Rock Cancer which provides music therapy to kids going through the cancer battle. Cori was asked to sing her song at a fundraising event because her lyrics were so powerful and encouraging and the therapists felt it would provide hope and strength to other kids her age. Cori's family plans to use the funds raised to help with the cost of medical bills, any supplies she may need not covered by insurance, as well as costs related to Cori's family being able to be with her during treatments.
