Little Girl Beats Cancer, Gets Expelled From Catholic School FOR TOO MANY ABSENCES
This is really sad…
Via Daily Caller:
Officials at a Catholic middle school in Battle Creek, Mich. have expelled a 12-year-old girl who had too many absences because she was busy fighting acute lymphoblastic leukemia — cancer of the blood cells.
Doctors diagnosed the girl, Rose McGrath, with the disease in August 2012. For more than two years, she underwent intense treatment. In 2014, she began a slow, still-ongoing recovery process, explains area CBS affiliate WWMT.
Then, this month, the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools, which McGrath has attended all her life, did unto her by kicking her out of St. Joseph Middle School.
“I didn’t do anything wrong, but they still got rid of me,” the girl told WWMT.
“When I’m at school I’m like everyone else,” the girl, who has been able to attend 32 full days of school this academic year, pleaded.
Her mother is equally displeased, observing that her daughter is finally, slowly beginning to recover from an arduous medical process.
“Even though she’s now done with her treatment you still have a very long recovery process because you’ve basically just put two and a half years of poison into your body,” Barbara McGrath said. More
