#LoganStrong Showing Support for Buffalo Teen Fighting Cancer

Local News

A Buffalo High School student is battling cancer — but not without the help of his friends. 

Logan Pennington is just like any other 15-year-old. He loves school, his friends, and music. The teen is a beloved member of the Buffalo High School Marching Band. 

“He’s the quietest, little silly guy. He sort of has the perfect low brass humor… perfect for a tuba player,” said his band director, Mark Hopkins. 

So when the fifteen year old was diagnosed with myeloid sarcoma, a very rare and aggressive form of cancer, his band mates knew they wanted to help. And what better way than a concert in his honor. 

“He loves music. Music has been his life for forever,” said classmate Phillip Wilfong. “This event is very sentimental… it means a lot because he’s been in the band since middle school,” added friend, Autumn Mellert. 

All of the funds raised from Saturday’s event will go to Logan and his family to help with travel and medical expenses. Donations on Logan’s behalf are still being expected. Donations can be made to the Buffalo High School Music Boosters by contacting the Buffalo High School here.
