Central Point, Ore. – Crater High School students are saying goodbye to one sparrow as they welcome another.

The school started its assembly with great news from its 2013-2014 sparrow.  Maidson Branaugh announced, “My tumors are getting better.”

The news comes after the 6-year-old spent the last year on a chemo drug to reduce the tumors that fill her body.  It’s part of a genetic disorder.  Her parents say the drug is working.  It has reduced her tumors by 44%.  Branaugh’s parents say it is helping to reduce her pain, save her vision and improve her quality of life.

Later in the school’s assembly, Crater High School students adopted their new sparrow, 2-year-old Amari Prewitt Williams.  She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at just 5-months-old.  That followed the meningitis she had at 17 days old.
