Two Carbon County students affected by cancer keep the fight going with another fundraiser. 

Olivia Wolfe and David Richards are trying to become the 2019 Students of the Year through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Monday night the duo hosted a spaghetti dinner at Molly McGuire's in Jim Thorpe.

Wolfe's brother passed away from Leukemia eight years ago and her father is battling it now. Richard's brother was diagnosed with Lymphoma five years ago.

This is one of many fundraisers they are hosting to raise a special goal of $50,000. 

"If we hit that goal we get to name a research grant in their names and we really want to do that because we want to do something in their memory," said Richards.

"It means so much and feels so good to be supported with everyone coming out," said Wolfe.
