TONTOGANY - An Otsego girl is hoping a bunch of rainbow bracelets brings a little light into a kindergartner's life.
Courtney Reyome, who is 11, is selling Rainbow Loom bracelets and giving the profits to the family of McKenna May, who is battling cancer. McKenna made headlines when her father refused consent in 2012 for a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World in Orlando, Fla. The girl ended up making the trip, thanks to donations that poured in from around the country.
"She seems like a really enthusiastic little girl who just got stuck with cancer," Courtney said. "I just wanted to help her."
So far, Courtney has weaved together dozens of the popular rubber-band bracelets. She sells them for $1.50 each to family and friends - and has raised $190 so far.
"I thought that maybe it could go for gas or for a grocery bill," Courtney said. "I'm hoping that I raise a lot of money for her."
