Eastgate Elementary students raise money for counselor

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Students at Eastgate Elementary did some extra homework to help their school counselor. 

Sue Conrad has been in Seattle for a couple months to be with her daughter, Jaime, who has Myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood and bone marrow disorder.  

so the school's K-Kids club helped raise over a thousand dollars, double their goal, to help Conrad's with medical costs. 

Conrad's daughter got a stem cell transplant in December.  They're both still living in Seattle for daily doctor visits and tests.
