Cancer survivor stands by cousin during treatment
Ontario, N.Y. -- A Wayne High School student who beat cancer with her cousin is supporting her again as she fights another round of the disease.
13WHAM first brought you the story of Mareesa Boyatzies and Katie Foster back in 2012, when both girls fought different forms of the disease.
They were both in remission until two months ago, when Katie's cancer returned.
Thursday, Mareesa helped organize a silent auction and raffle at her lacrosse game to help with Katie's medical bills and to benefit Camp Good Days.
Katie's aunt said she is responding well to treatment and that family and friends remain optimistic about her cancer fight.
