EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Going through chemotherapy is definitely not easy, but students at North Junior High School are continuing to make it a little better.

On May 17, North Jr. High School will host an assembly where students will present over 500 port pillows and a $525 monetary donation to Chemo Buddies.

Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy use port pillows as a soft, protective layer next to their port sites while they ride in a car and wear a seat belt. Students have sewn designs on the pillows and cut fleece rectangles for the back.

This year marks the sixth year that the school has partnered with Chemo Buddies.
