School holds balloon launch for student battling brain cancer

An elementary school in Springboro held a balloon launch Friday to show support for a fourth-grade student battling brain cancer. Five Points Primary school student Reagan Scacchetti was diagnosed with hypothalamus/optic chiasmatic glioma, a rare form of brain cancer. She has been battling cancer for eight years. Scacchetti’s family and friends joined the staff and students to celebrate the balloon launch. More than 200 balloons went up in the air. Everyone was encouraged to wear purple, which is Scacchetti’s favorite color. School officials say Scacchetti is the kindest soul and always willing to help others. Passing through downtown Springboro, you’ll see the town adorned along OH-741 purple ribbons, balloons and signs of encouragement. Last week there was a fundraiser for T-shirts that read ‘Team Reagan Our Rockstar’. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to Dr. Peter de Blank Research for low-grade gliomas at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in honor of Scacchetti.
