School Shows Pink Support For TeacherThe Breast Cancer Site
Students, parents and teachers at Cook Elementary in Syracuse, Utah, showed a wave of pink support for a loved one battling breast cancer, according to the Standard-Examiner. Louise Inderrieden is a second grade teacher at the school who recently returned to class after weeks of chemotherapy treatment.
Inderrieden was greeted with a welcoming entryway at the school decorated with ribbons, signs and a paper pink carpet.
"I was so overwhelmed because it was the most beautiful thing I've ever experienced, seeing the kids," Inderrieden told the source. "When you see this kind of support, there is nothing in the world that gives a person more power than the strength of other people. It gives you the energy to believe in yourself and to fight through the hard days."
The students all wore their best pink attire and one child even colored his hair in the cheery hue. In total, 400 students arrived to school early that day to take part in the event.
In Alabama, students also showed support for a physical education teacher who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer, according to Mobile FOX affiliate WALA. The kids at Taylor-White Elementary greeted Beth Prine with balloons, cards and a check to go toward her medical expenses.
