"We sold the shirts today, with 10 percent of the proceeds going to Susan G. Komen [for the Cure]," said senior Heather Stephens, one of three captains for Armwood's varsity cheerleading squad.

"Because everybody deserves to live," said cheerleading captain Lexie Martin, also a senior.

"This is not something to be taken lightly," she said. "It nees to be taken seriously, the fight for a cure."
