Clements High School cheerleader Danyelle Gilliam pins a pink ribbon on substitute teacher Pam Stanford as part of the cheerleaders’ “Stomp Out Breast Cancer Day” observation on Friday that had the school decked out in pink. Stanford is one of four faculty members at the school who have survived breast cancer. She has been cancer free for nine years after a regular mammogram found a tiny lump. She was only 43 at the time. “I hope the girls at our school learn from this to do self exams regularly and do regular mammograms when they are older.”
