Tune in the KBTX-3 tonight at 6:00 to hear the story about some of Erin's friends who dedicated their thirteenth birthday party to Erin's memory. Here's part of the story:
For many, birthday parties are all about getting gifts.
But for three local teenagers, their celebration was about giving to others, while honoring their friend.
Madison Kothmann, Morgan Livingston, and Jacqueline Handy celebrated their birthdays together earlier this month at Adamson Lagoon in College Station.
But instead of receiving gifts, they asked their guests to donate to the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation in honor of Erin Buenger.
Erin died in April 2009 after an 84 month battle with the childhood cancer.
During her short 11 years of life, Erin became a champion and lobbyist for children's cancer research.
The birthday party raised 700 dollars to help find a cure for the deadly disease.Here are the party goers. So many of these faces are so dear to me.
