Tucson (KGUN9-TV)- Sahuaro High School girl's volleyball team will hold a Cougars Care Night on Tuesday, October 22nd during their home game against Cienega. This year the team has chosen to support cheerleader Zoe Montano.
"it just makes you realize how blessed you are to get to do what you to do everyday without being sick," said Cougar volleyball player Victoria Davis.
Zoe was diagnosed over the summer with Ewings Sarcoma, a type of rare bone cancer. The senior, had been an active member of the Cougar's cheerleading squad before being diagnosed and while she's not able to cheer this year, she continues to remain positive about her recovery.
"She always has the energy to do anything, she always has a smile on her face," added Senior cheerleader Kourtney Childress.
On Tuesday, Zoe was in attendance before Varsity took the court for their home volleyball game. She was presented with flowers and cheered on by her fellow students.
Montano said, "It means so much to me that the cheerleaders got involved, now the whole school is starting to get involved, it just means a lot!"
Zoe will not be able to attend her fundraising event next Tuesday, while she'll be getting surgery, but there will be a table set up for anyone who'd like to donate to her cause.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the "Strike Out Cancer for Zoe Montano" fund,. You can also donate at any Wells Fargo Bank.
