Students Rally Behind Catholic School Teacher

A great story for a Friday. Have a wonderful weekend.


Kate Truax, a beloved literature teacher for fifth, sixth and seventh graders at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in Bethesda, Md. is receiving an outpouring of support from her students as she undergoes treatment for leukemia.

After receiving treatment for breast cancer during the 2009-2010 school year, Truax was diagnosed with leukemia.

She has been a patient at the John Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore, where she underwent a bone marrow transplant on Oct. 25. Truax’s students have eagerly volunteered to support Truax anyway they can.
