Jayci Glover, a teen with terminal cancer, decided to use her "Make-A-Wish" wish to help her school. On Feb. 20, People Magazine reported that Jayci Glover, 13, wanted to get her school a new scoreboard for their sporting events -- and that's just what she requested from the "Make-A-Wish" foundation.

"A check for $7,500 was presented to Principal Brenan Jackson in Glover's name – the basketball team wore 'Fight Like Jayci' T-shirts in Glover's honor," reports People Magazine. Now, everyone at Kanab High School in Utah will see the score of the game in big lights and will always think of Jayci and her brave fight.

Jayci Glover recently underwent very strong chemotherapy treatments as well as 40 rounds of radiation at a hospital in Salt Lake City and her doctors were worried that she wouldn't do well on the 4+ hour ride -- but she really wanted to go home and to be with her family and friends. When they arrived back in Kanab, they saw people in the town standing together to welcome Jayci back -- something that she says was "awesome."

So many people have so many wonderful things to say about Jayci and the way that this brave young woman is handling her illness and everything that comes along with it. She has touched the lives of so many, and she sounds like a great kid.

Jayci Glover has a rare form of terminal lymphoma. It's unknown how much longer she has but it's clear that she is cherishing every moment.
