A teacher's colleagues are coming together to support his family as his son battles cancer for a second time.
The Edina High School social studies department has started a Go Fund Me page for Nickie McKeever's family. Nickie McKeever's son Zachary is fighting cancer for the second time after being cancer-free for two years, the fundraising site says.
The page has a goal of $30,000 that'll be used to help with medical expenses that aren't covered by insurance.
In the first day, it raised more than $8,000 and as of Monday morning, it had raised $24,791.
Nickie McKeever is a former Edina Teacher of the Year, winning the accolade in 2017 courtesy of the Edina Chamber of Commerce.
The social studies department ran a similar fundraiser in 2018 for Zachary's first battle with cancer, which raised more than $42,000.
