It was given to fourth grade teacher Jewely Del Duca.

Del Duca is fighting stage 4 colon cancer.

In order to improve her odds of survival, she is hoping to undergo HIPEC treatment, which is a surgical form of chemotherapy. It is very expensive, so her friends and family are raising money on her behalf.

Two sisters, one a current student and the other a former student, started the True Gift Fund at Normandy Elementary. They asked every student to give up one Christmas gift and donate to the fund for Del Duca.

So many students gave up presents that Jenna and Jocie Bradford were able present Del Duca with a check for $11,063.

The Jewely Del Duca Fund is at Bellco Credit Union. For more information, call 1-800-235-3261 or visit
