Collecting all of the money they had raised for their senior class trip, the students took a vote to see who was willing to donate the $8,000 to help Vashaw pay her medical bills and the decision was unanimous: She deserved it.
Rather than going to Rydin' Hi Ranch in New York for four days, they took the cash they had pooled together and offered the touching gift to Vashaw less than a week after she had told them about her diagnosis.
In an interview with local news station WMUR, Vashaw said: “They are (a) pretty remarkable, fun, astonishing group of people". Meanwhile, Christopher Sirois, the senior class president, explained: “Every one of us has a connection with her, and she has given so much to us that we just wanted to give back."
The students now plan to organize some fundraisers to help Vashaw even more. Stories like this make the world (and Internet) a better place!
