OXFORD – Oxford Academy students have joined together to support one of their fellow classmates who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. A powderpuff football game and bake sale is slated to take place from 5 to 8 p.m. tonight at the Oxford Academy and Central School football fields.
Claudia Cardona – a senior at Oxford Academy – has just completed her second round of chemotherapy, said Taylor Ament, 17, a classmate and organizer for the event.
Admission is $3, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Cardona.
“A couple of girls and I came up with the idea,” said Ament. “We thought it would be a nice, fun way for the school to join together and help raise some money for Claudia’s family because we know she is going through a tough time being sick.”
