Donations for boy with cancer to be given to family of child killed in Plainfield crash
Donations collected by Tri-County schools for 9-year-old Miguel Duran will be given to the family of the 6-year-old girl hit and killed by a vehicle while waiting for the school bus Monday morning.
Miguel has stage 4 Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that forms in soft tissue. The cancer is aggressive, leaving him with not much time.
Arlene Bialk, Miguel’s mother, told NewsChannel 7 last month her son is a fighter and he has the heart of a champion.
On the Facebook page dedicated to updating the public on Miguel’s health, a post states:
WBAY-TV reports the school bus stopped along State Highway 73 with its lights flashing when a car tried to pass the bus on the right-hand side, striking and killing the child. A sibling was also injured.
