Fifth-grade students at Public School 22 shared a special moment with one of their favorite teachers, Adriana Lopez, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, by bringing her to tears singing a song dedicated to her.
The Staten Island chorus performed their version of Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” while each of them held a pink carnation.
Lopez couldn’t contain her emotions in the touching moment, constantly wiping away the flood of tears as her students delivered an inspiring performance.
“It’s not easy,” Lopez said in the video above. “But I will get through it because I have wonderful friends at school.”
