Chloe's Story:(12/18/08) Eleven year old, Chloe Staten has the kind of smile that lights up any room. Like many girls her age, Chloe likes to roller skate, shop with friends, and listen to music. But unlike many girls her age, Chloe is fighting cancer. In August of 2008, Chloe was playing with her dog, when she discovered a lump between her ear and skull. The tumor sent her to Portland, where she was diagnosed with Rhabdomayosarcoma, a type of cancer in the soft tissues. Chloe has had surgery to remove tumors, and is undergoing chemotherapy. The students at Phoenix High School are excited to "adopt" Chloe as their Sparrow for the 2008/2009 school year. Through community service, they will raise "Sparrow Cash" that will help Chloe's family with medical bills, travel expenses, and family needs.
