September 15, 2015 - September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This is a great time for schools and families to create awareness about pediatric cancers.

St. David Catholic Elementary School started its year off right with a fun-filled HAT DAY at the end of the first week of school. The students and staff wore crazy hats and ball caps during the school day to emotionally and financially support a former student battling synovial sarcoma cancer. Students donated funds for the privilege of wearing their hats during the school day. The school raised almost $400.00 to help provide support for the family. The school would like to publicly thank everyone who participated in this event!

Dylan Fay, a former St. David student, now a St. Charles College grade 8 student, was diagnosed this summer with synovial sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. His family spent most of the summer at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. This fall, Dylan will be going back and forth from Sick Kids to the Sudbury Cancer Center for treatment. During the month of September, St. David School will continue to support the Fay family through pray and fundraising efforts. "It is important that we support our school families in every way possible. We are asking for donations to support Dylan's family during this time, but more importantly we are praying for his full recovery. We know every little bit counts and want to provide as much support as possible -- in any form they need." stated Lindsay Michel, kindergarten teacher at St. David School.
