Bossier student has last wishes granted

Bossier student has last wishes granted

Posted: Updated:
A group of fourth grade students are doing what they can to grant the wishes of a their dying classmate. 

9-year-old Jamarria Wade is losing her battle with cancer, but that doesn't mean that her teachers and classmates at Stockwell Elementary won't do what they can to help her feel special. For example one of Jamarria's other wishes will be granted this coming Friday, at 3:30 at Vicki's Dance School in Bossier. She will get a private dance lesson. Every Tuesday at the school is "Jamarria's Day" to a pay it forward and help Jamarria get her last wishes.

"We have watched her go through this struggle, she and her family and we just wanted to do something further out of our school. So we contacted Pay it Forward Networking and they helped us to have people grant this dying girl's wishes," said Kim Howell, Stockwell Elementary School.
