ALPHARETTA, Ga. Alpharetta Christian Academy was recently touched by childhood cancer, when Andrew Hall, the 1-year-old sibling of two students, and another preschool student were both diagnosed with cancer. Both the preschool and the elementary school decided to take action by organizing a hat day on Sept. 13. Students could wear a hat to school by bringing a donation to Cure Childhood Cancer in the name of Hall, who was recently diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma. The response was overwhelming, and the school raised more than $3,100 for the research organization.

"With September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, hat day was an exciting way for kids to get involved in raising money and spreading awareness for such a great cause ... and, wow, our school worked together in an amazing way," said Jena Hall, Andrew's mother. "Our hopes are that Andrew's story will continue to give glory to God as well as remind people that children in our own community are suffering from pediatric cancers that are significantly underfunded."
