Teen Raises More Than $11,500 for Friend with Lymphoma by Selling Hog

 

A teenager from Farwell went “full boar” to help her friend and teammate Saturday.

17-year-old Harley Crawford was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma.

She’s now going through a six-month period of chemotherapy treatments.

Fellow student Mia Fetzer came up with a unique way to help pay for Harley’s medical expenses.

She sold two hogs at the Clare County Fair’s large animal auction, and is giving money from one of the hogs to Harley.

Fetzer says she wanted to do anything she could to help her friend.

“When I found out Harley had lymphoma, it was a big shock to me and I wanted to do anything I could to help,” says Fetzer. “I decided one of my pigs was the biggest thing I could do… I’m selling one for myself, but the other is for her.”

The hog sold for $40 a pound.

Because it weighed 288 pounds, that means the sale raised $11,520.
