Be the Good (How She Taught Us)

$11,016 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 190 people in 48 months

Yesterday, many of us watched as the Class of 2015 made a tremendously selfless gesture for our teacher, mentor, and friend, Courtney Vashaw's, cancer treatment.

WMUR: Bethlehem Senior Class Gives Trip Money to Principal Battling Cancer

Many have asked how they, too, can help.

We, as alumni, have all been influenced by Courtney's strong leadership: whether in the classroom, on a stage, or as we navigate the world at large. She helped us graduate, get into college, and taught us to uplift our communities though caring acts.

Cancer can be expensive, as we are all aware. While there are events planned in the future to raise money for care, and since we don't yet know the full cost of treatment, if you'd like to show your support for Ms. Vashaw - you now have an opportunity through this page.

Any funds raised above & beyond treatment & care costs will be donated to Synovial Sarcoma Research and/or any cancer research foundations of Courtney's choice.

This morning, I sent our donation to Courtney, who is beginning her radiation treatment today. Thank you everyone for your generous offering of support so far!

As she starts on her journey to recovery, we are getting a clearer picture of how many costs there are going to be, what's covered, and what's not...

For that reason, I am going to leave this GoFundMe open and update the goal. Also, if you're interested in other ways to help this incredible educator & friend, please contact me for more information on upcoming local fundraisers & events.

THANK you to everyone who has donated, shared this page, and stopped by to leave encouragement - WE MADE OUR 10K GOAL!!

Your support means so much to Courtney, to her family, her students, and to me. What an amazing community we live in! Thank you Profile Class of 2015 for your selflessness, which helped Courtney's story get shared far and wide. You're such a special group of young people - you should be so proud of yourselves!

I am going to leave this campaign open for donations to give others a chance to give; so if you'd like to contribute and haven't, you will still have an opportunity.

Please share this link or stop by the page to leave encouraging comments for Courtney!

You students are an inspiration to all of us. I was a teacher for 30 years and I loved hearing about your class's generosity.
