Berry Strong Against Childhood Cancer

Caroline Berry, far right, lost her battle to childhood cancer last fall. This year, Spanish Fort is carrying on her passion for awareness.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and
one team is shining a golden light on the cause. In its first match of the
month, Alabama’s Spanish Fort HS is wearing gold jerseys to represent
the childhood cancer awareness ribbon color to honor a member of the program
lost too early.

What began in late 2016 as pain in her hips and legs, Caroline
, a volleyball and basketball player at Spanish Fort, was diagnosed
with Stage-4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive sarcoma that targets soft
muscle and connective tissues. After two grueling years of battling cancer,
Berry passed away on Thanksgiving morning, 2018.
