Carson High Senior Raises $300 for Cancer Awareness

Posted: Updated:

A Carson City High School senior says she raised about $300 this past weekend for breast cancer awareness.

Abby Lafoon's event, ‘A Step Toward a Cure' was held Saturday at her school. She says she wanted to symbolize walking in someone else's footsteps as part of her senior project.

Five years ago her mother was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer so Abby wanted to do something to help victims.

"I think that everybody should know about cancer, should know about the struggles that not only the cancer survivor has but also the families," she told us beforehand.

She says she's still collecting shoes for the fence if you'd like to help out.

The fence will eventually be donated to the cancer center, and the money will go toward Moms on the Run – a group that helps local women battle cancer.
