St. Margaret 6th Grader Raises Money for Breast Cancer Awareness

Like so many others, Gillian van der Have knows what it is to lose a family member to breast cancer.

In Gillian's case, it was her aunt, Marita van der Have. 

Gillian van der Have responded with "Marita's Garden," raising $100 to be sent to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. She used duct tape to decorate pens to make them look like flowers and sold them at a local tag sale.
