Students raising money in memory of classmate

INDIANAPOLIS -- Students at Franklin Township Middle School West are collecting change for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

So far they've collected more than $13,000 but their goal is much higher.

If they raise $25,000, the school's name will be linked to a cancer research grant.

That's significant because three years ago, the school lost a student to leukemia.

Maddy Justice's picture is all over the school.

Her fight has inspired students to give, including one seventh grader who donated five one-hundred dollar bills.
