Jaylen Burnice, a 4th grade student at Holly Hill, was diagnosed this summer with T Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, a rare, fast growing form of cancer. He and his mother are required to travel to Birmingham 3 times a week for his treatments. Not only is Jaylen a student here, but his grandmother, Ms. Mary, is our beloved friend and custodian, and continues to work hard to keep our school beautiful.
We are collecting can tabs for the Ronald McDonald house, which provides rooms for families while their loved one receives treatment. It is our hope to help Jaylen and his family as much as we can.
Anyone who has met Jaylen knows his bright smile and kind heart. Jaylen is strong and determined to return to the football field to play for his Wildcats. We are asking the community to rally around Jaylen and support him through this difficult time. We will be doing several fundraisers through the year to help Jaylen.
One simple way of showing support is our WILDCAT WEDNESDAY. Jaylen loves his Wildcat family and we are asking everyone to wear blue or white every Wednesday.

Let’s show Jaylen the support he needs and be #jaylenstrong!
