Boy to be featured for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

A Dacula boy fighting cancer for nearly two years will be featured next week on the web site of a nonprofit organization.

Reece McPhail, a 9-year-old from Dacula battling leukemia, has partnered with CURE Childhood Cancer to raise money in the fight against childhood cancer. Reece’s story will be featured on the CURE web site and Facebook page on Sept. 18.

A fundraising goal was set for $1,000, but as of Tuesday afternoon the effort had raised $755 on www.firstgiving.com. He has shared his story in efforts to help raise awareness for childhood cancer as well as raise money to support research and families dealing with childhood cancer.
