FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) - An Ambrose fourth grader is asking you to go without a snack for a day for a good cause. Nine-year-old Hannah Jowers is raising money for her friend 4-year-old Savannah Pughsley who will soon start chemotherapy for a brain tumor.

Hannah is challenging 6,000 South Georgia students and teachers to give up their snack or coffee and donate a dollar toward the fund. The family will use that money for building supplies to make Savannah's room more accommodating for her cancer treatments.

"Hannah is donating eleven dollars and eleven snack days of her own dollars for the Savannah," said her mother, Ann Jowers.

"I think its amazing. I can't imagine how she came up with the idea for a child wanting to help another child and it's wonderful," said Savannah's mother, Brittany Pughsley.

A fund is set up for Savannah at Colony Bank. You can also click here for more information on how you can help.
