BV fifth-grader takes initiative on cancer issue

       Sarah Boston, a fifth-grader at Buena Vista Elementary, impressed her mother and helped out a friend in need recently.
       When she learned that the 35-year-old father of a family she knows had been diagnosed with cancer, Sarah took the initiative of ordering 100 Lance Armstrong wristbands from the Discovery Channel's Internet website (with a funding donation from her uncle, Roy Boston), then selling the wristbands at school.
       From the sales, she made $200. Half will go to the family and the other half to the Penrose Cancer Center, explained her mother, Angie Berry.
       “I thought that was neat,” Berry said of Sarah, who is also student council president at Buena Vista. “It's unusual for a fifth grader to up and do something like that for people she cares for.”
