Big Spring athletics continues fundraising efforts for Hailey Williams, local teen diagnosed with cancer

Local News

BIG SPRING, Tx (ABC Big 2/Fox 24) The Big Spring athletic department is continuing its quest to raise money for Hailey Williams, a local teen diagnosed with cancer last month.

The Steers hosted a seven-on-seven tournament Saturday and all proceeds raised at the concession stand were donated to Williams. According to Big Spring coach Eric Tuttle, they collected $831 in donations.

Kourtney Moore, a sophomore at Big Spring who helped coordinate the event, said she just wanted to make sure Williams knew she was not alone in this fight. Moore is a family-friend of Williams.

“We’ve always just known her family. So when we found out she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, we just wanted to help out a little bit,” Moore said.

Williams was diagnosed with the rare form of cancer in April. According to a post from her aunt on her GoFundMe page, Williams began chemotherapy on May 10. She will travel to Dallas every two weeks to receive treatment for the next nine months.

If you’re interested in donated to Williams, you can do so on her family’s GoFundMe page.
