A Wisconsin teacher with stage 4 cancer received a heartwarming surprise from her young students.
Carol Mack is a 1st and 2nd grade teacher at Christ Lutheran School in Big Bend, WI.
For 45 years, she’s taught generations of students and continued to teach this school year while battling cancer. But now, the cancer has advanced, and instead of returning to her classroom, Carol needs hospice care.
Before moving to hospice, one of her fellow teachers and friends wanted Carol to be able to reunite with her students once again. Dozens of students showed up outside of Aurora St. Luke’s on November 3.
Carol was there to greet her current and former students, including some of their parents whom she also taught, and hear the kids sing worship songs to her.
“It was overwhelming and very special. I hope people see how much these kids and their teacher loved each other and how our school community came together,” said Carol.
Carol’s care team at Aurora St. Luke’s said they were happy to be part of the special moment.
