Five years ago, Carrington Marzett was diagnosed with leukemia, enduring eight months of treatment at MD Anderson in Houston. With her cancer now in remission, Marzett is today a junior business major at Baylor — but her efforts continue to help other children fighting cancer, especially during this Christmas season.
While at MD Anderson, Marzett participated in the MD Anderson Cancer Center Children’s Art Project, designing artwork that is then used in holiday gift items such as greeting cards and ornaments; funds raised from the sale of such items funds programs at the Cancer Center that benefit patients and their families. This year’s offerings include a variety of items based on three of Marzett’s designs — “Boots,” “Three Friends” and “Presents.”
“It’s definitely wonderful to know that all my stuff is still helping cancer patients like me,” she told her hometown Midland Reporter-Telegram.
Sic ’em, Carrington!
