What's Your Story - Bella Hyburegts
There is a famous saying that goes, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”. This saying can apply to anything from books to people. Bella Huybregts, a junior, on the outside looks like a regular teen, with pink hair. This may seem weird to anyone who sees Bella just in passing, but to anyone that knows her, it has a much deeper meaning.
On May 3, 2013, Bella’s mom was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer, breaking hearts in everyone who knew her. Throughout the weeks, her mom started to show progress and got moved from ICU to a so called “normal room”. However, by the end of July, the cancer had spread through her lungs and bones becoming a hyperactive cancer, and she had to start chemo again. Within those weeks her mom persevered and tried to convey that she was ok, despite the fact that everyone around her knew that she definitely wasn’t.
