Pink Passion Day at Mebane Middle
Today students and teachers celebrated pink passion day in honor of 13-year-old D'Aisha Porter who is battling a rare type of cancer called clear cell sarcoma, but today was a day to celebrate.
T-V- 20's Yaremi Farinas was at the school when D'Aisha and her family received a special gift from the community.
Seventh- grader D'Aisha Porter received a lot of love and support at a rally that was held for her today at her school.
Her classmates and teachers have been fund raising all week. Different community groups have donated to the D'Aisha fund.
On top of the donations made by the community, the students and staff at Mebane are selling these bracelets. They have diamonds up on them because when D'Aisha was a little girl she was called pink diamond.
Almost every student at Mebane is wearing a "I support D'Aisha Porter" bracelet. Eighth- grader Justin Holmes went above and beyond by rocking the pink on his head.
D'Aisha and Justin have been friends since the first grade.Hhe says he loves how everyone is putting their diamonds up for D'Aisha.
After a long week of fundraising, D'Aisha and her family were presented with a donation of $1,409.70.
If you would like to purchase a "I support D'Aisha Porter" bracelets contact the school and ask for Alisha Williams.
