Romeo Hernandez’s story has a bit of an overlap with that of Kelsey Roberts, the spunky Greenhill sixth-grader Dan mentioned yesterday, because it involves fundraising and bone cancer. Romeo’s situation is far more somber, though, and we’ve been asked to put the word out.
From an email circulating through the Hillcrest community:
Romeo Hernandez is a 15-year-old student and band member at Hillcrest High School. Romeo is also a former student at Preston Hollow Elementary and Franklin Middle School. Recently, Romeo was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma (bone cancer) in his legs. Ewing’s sarcoma affects around 200 teens and young adults each year in the United States.Due to his cancer treatment, Romeo will miss nine months of school and be away from friends and classmates for most of that time.
More power to you, Romeo.
