I have attached the video that our high school students made for our fellow Cardinal, Daniel Malon, who is fighting Leukemia at St. Jude’s hospital. He and his mother watched the video with tears in their eyes the whole time. Daniel was so impressed that people did that for him that didn’t even know him. They were also very impressed by our “solo” singer! Daniel said “Thank you” just after watching it, even though he was overwhelmed with emotion.

I want to thank all the participants and volunteers that showed Cardinal spirit, love, and support for Daniel. This is why it’s good to be a Cardinal! -- Stacey Dutton -- Collinsville SPED Department (9/26/2016)
