When 10-year-old Carol Begg heard that a student at her school was battling liver cancer she decided she needed to help fundraise so his family could be with him when he was at Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.
Carol attends Glendale School and learned about six-year-old Chase Lamont’s cancer from her Grade 5 teacher.
“I felt badly for him and started raising money two weekends ago. I made up a chart and a little write up about Chase,” Carol said.
With help from her sister, Elana, she raised about $100.
While Carol was playing on her Girls Atom Hockey team, Elana went around the rink asking for donations.
Carol hopes she can meet Chase some day.
“It was sad knowing that he was supposed to be in Grade 2 this year and knowing that he wanted his family down in Vancouver with them. I hope the money I raised helps,” she said.
