For rising Grassfield Senior Megan Curry, the number 67 is her life.

For the past three years, she's not only been a part of the Grassfield Grizzlies competition Cheer Squad, she has also been diagnosed with a rare genetic blood disorder. It's only the 67th case on record.

Through it all, it has been her teammates who have been by her side every step of the way.

Now the team is holding a flip-a-thon on Tuesday to help other students like Megan.

Megan had three bone marrow transplants in one day.

She had six days of chemotherapy and two days of radiation.  She is hoping to be able to come back home on June 21st.

The flip-a-thon will be on Tuesday at Grassfield High School. The event will start at 4:15 p.m.

The team has already raised $4,000 dollars.
