Gardner-Webb University, local schools, churches, and the community in the Boiling Springs and Shelby area are coming together to help support and cheer on a local middle school student with cancer. In June 2010, Crest Middle School student Seth Strickland was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer that primarily targets children and teenagers. Seth began treatments, underwent surgeries, and persevered through physical therapy.
