Sharpsburg, GA-Many of the high school students wore red white and blue to honor 9/11, but many of the students wore pink in order to honor their classmate who was a fighter and a cheerleader who lost her battle to brain cancer. Seventeen-year-old Madeline McTier was a cheerleader who spent the last two years on the sidelines with a brain tumor which took her life on Tuesday.
Madeline was supported by a large Facebook Page following
Friends and strangers stood beside her on her brave journey through chemotherapy, and radiation treatments with thousands of well wishes.
The page is a Memorial page now promoting a fundraiser for her family to help with expenses.
“The moment you came in contact with her, she just lifted you up. She was a fighter, just the kind of person who did more in her seventeen years on earth than most people probably do in eighty years.”
At Friday night’s football game (Sandy Creek) the color will change from pink to gray to honor Madeline’s courage and bravery during her battle against brain cancer.
