LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

UMC is offering support for local cancer patients thanks to some help from Frenship Middle School. 

Frenship's National Junior Honor Society presented a $1,074 check and hat donation to UMC's Cancer Boutique. The boutique offers a safe place for women to learn how to style wigs, wear scarves, and receive tips for going through chemotherapy. 

The students normally donate to national foundations, but this year they decided to keep their fundraising local. 

"And so we did some research and we found the UMC Women's Boutique and we just thought it was really cool what they did and how they helped out, and we wanted to be a part of that," said Lindsey Frick, Vice President of Frenship Middle School's NJHS.

UMC representatives say the donation will help with the Celebrate Today fund, which helps provide wigs, tips, and beauty products to patients.

"Whenever you have a place that's safe and you can be taught and you can do it with someone that's probably walked in this journey before and knows what you are experiencing, it just really helps to be able to have that place and that experience and the whole healing process," said Sandy Ogletree, Executive Director of the UMC Foundation. 

Ogletree says Frenship's donation will also help provide transportation and other services for patients at UMC.
