Sarah Crane was a Sophomore at Elkhart Memorial High School (in Elkhart, Indiana) and was full of Charger Pride. A Letter winner in Track and actively involved in Cross Country, Drill Team and Dance, Sarah always maintained a positive attitude in life, sports and her academics. On July 10th, that positive attitude became critically important as she was diagnosed with Stage-4 Colon Cancer; an extremely rare form of cancer for someone her age with the colon, liver, lungs and bowels affected and requiring cancer treatments consisting of surgeries and on-going chemotherapy. While most would have given-up or huddled in fear, Sarah stood strong and vowed to win this battle. Sarah refused to back-down or surrender. The slogan SARAHSTRONG is where this was born. It was her mantra and focus during this difficult process. The purple represents not only the fight against all cancers but is Sarah’s favorite color. 

Unfortunately for us, Sarah's battle ended on 12/7/13. She was at home with her family when she finally passed on. Her legacy and spirit will live on in all of us. Sarah is now cancer-free and healthy. Please continue to pray for all who loved Sarah and are touched by her story and fight.
