Battling Cancer – Morgan Bjarno

Eileen Bjarno can’t go far in Glastonbury these days without seeing the reminders.

One day, she’ll be at the local Dunkin’ Donuts and hear a conversation about those orange bracelets everyone is wearing in support of her daughter, Morgan, a former junior varsity soccer player for the Tomahawks. Then the next day, she’ll be lining up at a 5K road race and look over and see a group of kids with the shirts bearing Morgan’s name.

They’re everywhere, and that’s fine. To read the rest of Matt Conyers story click here:

Morgan Bjarno, a junior at Glastonbury High School, was diagnosed with leukemia on April 23, the Friday before school break and has been undergoing treatment at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Friday afternoon she was introduced as an honorary starter as teammates high five her and gave two bouquets of orange roses before they played Windsor. As signs of support the team wore orange ribbons in their hair and orange vests during the game, a 7-0 victory. They players were eager to lend a helping hand as she did her best to enjoy the honor even though she was feeling ill from chemotherapy the day before.
