Tomball students work to give teacher with cancer dream vacation

A group of students at Tomball Junior High School wants to make sure a teacher they love lives out one of her dreams.Michelle Wistrand was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue, in 2015. She has missed school for treatments, but she has always been back. Her students knew about her disease. Last week, the news got worse.

“They said two to five years more or less. Could be more, could be less,” Wistrand said of her life expectancy.”We all kind of got teary-eyed and some of us were crying,” said student Mickey Nolen, 13.

Because of the tears, the 8th grade English/Language Arts teacher changed the subject to her bucket list.

“Told them my first wish was to go to the Redwood forest and put my feet in the Pacific Ocean,” she said.
