Katey Writes About Lindsey
My friend Katey Doman, a college sophomore majoring in public relations, has an article on Lindsey Popelas, a Roscoe native, at The Valley Independent, Jan. 5. (I know, I know: I'm two months late. But I only saw it posted on the church bulletin board last week.)
While Lindsey Popelas has always dreamed of teaching children ABCs and 1-2-3s, it has been letters and numbers that have kept this 21-year-old California University of Pennsylvania education major alive.
Writing on chalkboards, checking students' papers and giving out the weekly spelling lists are what this Roscoe native has longed for.
As Hodgkin's lymphoma crept into her life, her long-awaited dream started to vanish....
Today, Popelas is feeling better than ever. She claims she is the bubbly, happy-go-lucky girl she always was. She is now in remission after going through a stem-cell transplant last summer, made possible by her sister, Chaley, 23, of Harrisburg, who is director of community service at Messiah College....
Friend and classmate Meghan Slavic, a 20-year old education major, claims, "Lindsey is an inspiration in life to everyone. When she could have gotten down about her situation, she didn't. She saw light in all of it. She didn't give up. She was optimistic. Lindsey is strong. Lindsey has faith in her God. Lindsey believed. I guess that's all it took."
Lindsey was our high school's May Queen 2002, and Katey was in the homecoming court 2002. Here are some of my photos of Lindsey and Chaley, and of Katey and her sister Lucy.
