School shows support for nurse battling cancer

BIRDSBORO, Pa. -

The staff is taking care of the school nurse at Birdsboro Elementary Center.

Tammy Hughes has been off for the past month while she undergoes treatment for breast cancer.

When she returned to work Monday, she saw all her co-workers dressed in pink.

Hughes said the staff made her a scrapbook and cooked meals for her family while she was off.  She's still undergoing treatment, but she said she's happy to be back.
