Collierville High School Chalk for Cancer Event

TEENAGE people are good.

I was invited to a great event at the local high school today - the 3rd annual Chalk for Cancer Awareness Day. Groups of high school students created artwork using sidewalk chalk to honor cancer survivors or loved ones affected by cancer.

This event took on special meaning as several of the groups chose to honor their classmate, Trey Erwin, who is in treatment for pancreatic cancer. The community of Collierville has rallied around Trey and his family through prayer and financial support since his diagnosis earlier this year. Through Facebook and Twitter (#prayfortrey), his story of courage and faith has reached people all across the country.

"Pray for Trey"

"Let's Make Cancer Extinct"

"The Magic of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital"

The CHS Parent-Teacher-Student Association chose to draw the CCX shining heart for their entry. What a wonderful surprise!
