Funding cancer research only a fraction of Old Colony student’s goals

Elana Sargent, a Old Colony  student from the Carpentry shop, has been raising money to combat a rare brain cancer, glioblastoma, since she was nine years old. She lost her father, John, to the same cancer at age 11. Sargent has developed her own method of raising money— she makes bracelets.

Selling the bracelets she made, she was able to donate $2000 to Lahey Health Clinic, where her father was treated.

After Sargent donated money to Lahey Health, she started donating to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Since she started making bracelets, she has raised close to $10,000 in donations overall. She reported that she generally donates $1,000 per month to Mass General.
