In Coweta, it seems like almost everyone is out to help Coweta High School senior Morgan Mitchell beat cancer for a fourth time.

“We are making bows and selling them for Morgan. We all decided that we wanted to help her in some way,” Aubrey Killgore said as she showed off handmade bows she and her friends had made.

There's even a song for Morgan called “Fight your Fight.”

Here is a sample of some of the lyrics:

"Three times you've beaten this enemy
But here it comes again
Trying to take you to your knees”

Cancer is not the only fight for Morgan’s family. They're spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to save her life.

“Money is tight, just because my family gives the money to help save my life,” Morgan told FOX23.

The support for Morgan and her family in Coweta goes beyond wearing bows or purple and yellow, teachers at Mission Intermediate School have organized an All for One Morgan Run, a race on December 1st to help Morgan's family cover the enormous cost of fighting cancer.

“It doesn't matter if you walk it, or run it, or hop it or skip it, however you want to do it, it's one simple step you can do,” Race Organizer Trish Waller said.

Businesses like Blue Bell and WalMart have already donated to the run.

“To be able to help somebody on the front side as opposed to the back side, it's always great to be able to help a local family out,” Coweta WalMart manager Wes Wilson said.

The “help” is money the family needs to travel to Texas for Morgan’s treatments.

“That's a big blessing for us for travel, for hotels, for food,” Morgan said.

Morgan is already confident her run will be one of the greatest moments of what she knows will be a very long life.

“When I am 60, it's like man, that community really was amazing and helped me.”
