Tuscaloosa Teen Raising Money for a Magical Event for Children
When children are fighting cancer their lives are anything but normal. That's a fact that 17 year old Hillcrest High student Angel Eaton knows all too well.
Angel spent nearly two years battling Ewing's sarcoma, a rare disease in which cancer cells are found in the bone or in soft tissue. She went through months of chemo and radiation and even had surgery to remove a tumor from her rib cage. Miraculously, Angel has been cancer-free since January of this year!
That's exactly the reason she is putting together "A Carnival Fantasy: Where Anything is Possible." The event is an opportunity for children who are fighting for their lives to forget about cancer for a few hours and just have fun.
Angel has every detail of the party planned out, from the carnival games and face painting to the shaved ice and cotton candy but she needs our help to make this dream a reality.
She has set up a Go Fund Me page to help cover the cost of putting the carnival on. Any money raised over the actual cost will be put toward other similar events that Angel is planning for the future.
"A Carnival Fantasy: Where Anything is Possible" will be held at the Belk Activity Center on Saturday, Aug. 8th from 10 am-1 pm and will be free! The event will be open to children on and off therapy, and their immediate family members. If you'd like to go, click here and reserve your spot as attendance will be limited to 325 people.
