When New York public school teacher Adriana Lopez was diagnosed with breast cancer, her students wanted her to know they ‘had her back’.
So they sat her on the stage and, with pink carnations in hand, sang Martina McBride’s, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” as part of their final class of the year.
For Lopez, who teaches in Staten Island, the heartfelt serenade was overwhelming, hitting just the right note.
“I just felt so supported and from all these little kids, who don’t know what cancer really is,” she told TODAY. “I just couldn’t stop crying.”
Lopez has been a teacher for over thirty years, and said that even though school’s out for summer, people from P.S. 22 have been checking in to see how she’s doing.
