We first heard about Sydney's case from Paulette Theisen, the Assistant Principal at St. James/Seton School. Sydney started the school year enrolled in the five-day prekindergarten program but had to stop attending to fight her cancer. If possible, Sydney comes to school once a month to visit classmates.
"I have seen her spirit grow and touch the hearts of many that come in contact with Sydney," said Theisen. "She has been a huge positive influence on our students here at St. James/Seton."
Sydney has tremendous community support and we are honored to help in a small way that helps ease the burden that comes with fighting this terrible disease.
AsOmaha Gives! approaches, remember Sydney's story and the fact that there are hundreds more just like hers here in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa. Your gift makes a difference! Also, make plans now to attend our sixth annual Halloween event on October 22nd at Anthony's Steakhouse.
Do you know of a patient or a family that needs help in their fight against Cancer? Fill out our gift application and tell us more. Cancer is a personal battle, but it shouldn’t be one that is fought alone.
