Marisol Perez and her family ‘pay it forward’ to her classmates.

Pictured are Norma Ortero, Julie Perez, Marisol Perez, Rusty Perez and Kathy Long.

Since Marisol Perez’s diagnosis with Leukemia in October, the preschoolers at John F. Kennedy Elementary have hosted corn hole tournaments, bake sales and even gave their own money to help out their classmate.

After a successful fundraiser at the MEGA 104.3 Mega Yard Sale the family decided to pay it forward to the students and provide them with an ice cream social.

Marisol was able to attend and personally thank her friends at school for helping her and her family during her recovery. (Submitted Photo: Sarah Sanchez)
