Burton school plans benefit for classmate with cancer

6-year-old Allie is fighting Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.

A Burton school is rallying to help a first-grader fighting a rare form of cancer. Six-year-old Allie See was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia in December. Sheâ??s been home for chemotherapy treatments, which could last another three and a half years.

Allie's classmates at Barhitte Elementary have been encouraging her with get-well letters.

"She's been a real trooper,â?? said Allieâ??s mother Mary Frazier. â??She's our rainbow princess warrior, and we're just all together, you know, Team Allie."

Allie's family is welcoming the public to attend a benefit spaghetti dinner from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, January 27, at the Blessed Sacrament Church in Burton.

The Machine Shop on South Dort Highway will put on a benefit concert for Allie on February 25, and G & G T-Shirts on Fenton Road is selling t-shirts.

All proceeds will go toward Allie's medical expenses.
