Louisville teen wins national volunteering honor while fighting own health battle
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville teen is up for a national award for her volunteerism. Anna-Maria Beck has raised thousands of dollars over the years through bake sales, all while battling a brain tumor.
For most bakers, a batch is 12 cookies. But for Beck, one batch is 200 cookies. "So we'll make a couple batches, so that's probably like 500, 600 cookies," Beck said.
The Sacred Heart Academy senior is in the business of bake sales. She's raised thousands of dollars over the years, all while fighting a brain tumor. "Years fighting this stupid tumor. I can't get over it," she said.
