Coweta teen Morgan Mitchell announced on Thursday she is battling cancer for the 5th time.
FOX23 has been following Mitchell’s cancer fight since 2012. The Coweta and Green Country community has rallied around Mitchell and her family during her fight. There have been 5ks, football games and other fundraisers to help the family pay for medical costs.
On Saturday, FOX23 talked to Mitchell as she helped plan the “All 4 One 5K” to raise money for Families Fighting Childhood Cancer.
At the time Mitchell was cancer free and in the maintenance stage of her treatment. She said organizing the run was to show support for other cancer victims.
“To know that people have your back 100 percent and are there for you no matter what, when you need them the most, is a big deal," she said.
On Thursday morning a post on the Morgan’s Fight is My Fight Facebook
