Coming together for Kristopher

The community is coming together to help Kristopher Schreacke who has been fighting for his life for the past 10 years.

Fourteen-year-old Kristopher has been battling cancer for most of his life.

After he recently became very ill, families of his classmates decided to start a t-shirt fundraiser in his honor.

The Schreacke family is extremely grateful for all of the prayers, and it's the community that's getting them through.

"People come together and they're willing to go the extra mile, or help, or um, you know, help benefit it anyway, it doesn't have to be financially, it's just, take the time to just go the extra mile," fundraiser co-coordinator Tina Willer said.

The community has even crossed over to social media where the hashtag #PrayForKristopher is being used to show support.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will be given to the Schreacke family to help with related expenses.
