      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. She??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,?? said Allie??s mother Mary Frazier. ??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.
