At only 11 years of age, Morgan Elementary student Joey Caretti has already spent nearly a fifth of his young life in chemotherapy for a rare form of brain cancer. Following the treatment, Morgan students learned that their classmate has leukemia.
To help bring their classmate strength, Morgan students are assisting a community project to collect "Get Well" cards that will be delivered in a big sack to their friend.
Morgan students - and many others across the district - have been creating individual cards in art classes. In addition, each grade has created a large card for each student to sign.
Anyone can participate in the community effort. Get well cards may be sent to Joey c/o: 22671 Eddy Drive, Macomb, MI 48044. Over the few weeks, the cards will be collected and delivered to Joey - unopened - in a large sack.
