Fancher Elementary Donates Big For Fellow Student

Students at Fancher Elementary school in Mt. Pleasant did two weeks of big fundraising for one of their own. Sixth grader Anna Ruter has a rare condition called Maple Syrup Urine Disease. Its a condition she was born with, and now, at this stage in her life she needs a liver transplant. Her friends and fellow classmates decided to hold several fundraisers to help Anna and her family with financial expenses. Students were rewared today for all their hard work. They got to break eggs over teachers heads, put whip cream on their faces, and one teacher even got his head shaved. In all the students raised $3,330. As an added surprise, the schools P-T-O matched that for a total donation of $6, 660. The Ruters could get a call any day saying they need to leave for Pittsburg where the liver transplant will take place. The money raised will help the family with travel costs while they are there with their daughter.
