Madie Story's cheer team is always rooting for the bobcats, but with her mom battling cancer for the second timenall the support is in her corner.
"We are all on her side and we want everything to go well for her so with the pink she really feels the love," said the captain of Storyâ??s cheer team Emily Emrick.
A choked up story finds the words to describe the silver lining in her momâ??s battle with cancer.
"Its just really amazing even though this situation sucks threeâ??s so many blessings that come out," said Story.
Students who don't know Story say the pink out is spreading through Grand Blanc Schools like wildfire.
"We all started tweeting it and word got around," said Emrick.
The cheerleaders are using the twitter hashtag #prayforthestorys to spread the message of hope.
"Itâ??s so amazing how this spread so fast," said Story.
Story's mother Katie has fought off cancer once before the squad says the toughness it takes to beat cancer rubbed off on Katieâ??s daughter.
"A lot of people call her the rock of the team. She is a role model to so many people on the team. She's just like her mom," said cheerleader Lauren Carr.
â??The Rockâ?? says her mothers bout with cancer is thickening her skin and preparing her for her future.
"She has shown me all of her knowledge and Iâ??m just glad i get to share it with everybody else," said Story.
The cheer squadâ??s next plan is taking over Friday night footballâ??s game with a pink out.
