Editor’s Note: Spotlight Students are nominated by staff and faculty at WSU Spokane and were recognized during commencement for their dedication, commitment, sacrifice and/or ability to overcome great odds to succeed as a student. They are selected by a committee ahead of commencement. WSU Spokane will feature a Spotlight Student each day through May 13.
In October of 2011, Allison Perrine lost her mother to breast cancer. Since then, the nursing graduate has dedicated her life to helping those impacted by the disease.
Perrine will bike across America in honor of her mother, who passed away from breast cancer in 2011. The WSU College of Nursing wrote about Perrine recently, and KXLY featured her story last night (video is above).
Kudos to Perrine for honoring her mother and all who have been touched by cancer in one way or another.
