Students use Lemonade Day to raise money for teacher battling cancer

Local News

Students at Ben Franklin Elementary School celebrated Lemonade Day on Friday and the funds raised will be going to their own, a first-grade teacher battling Cancer.

About three years ago Erin Beason was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia and while she went into remission,  during Spring Break, she learned the disease had returned.

So fifth-grade English as a Second Language students are selling lemonade and cookies to raise funds to help with her Medical Expenses.

“I’m just really thankful,’ Beason said.” “Tracy came into my room about a week ago and told me about Lemonade Day that they were gonna be donating it to me, so I’m thankful for her and the students who gave up their field trip to be here today and just all of the Ben Franklin Community.

Tracy Little, the ESL teacher Beason referred to, said it was a no brainer to donate the money to her because ten years ago when Little’s son was battling Cancer, Beason was there for her.

Donations were also made by other people in town to support their cause
