ABOUT PASSIONATELY PURPLE: Sarah Crane was a sophomore at Elkhart Memorial High School when she was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer on July 3, 2013. She was one of the youngest, at age 15, to be diagnosed with such an advanced form of colon cancer. On December 7, 2013, Sarah lost her battle. Sarah was a fighter and as she continued to battle the disease, she encouraged us all to be #SarahStrong no matter what we face in our daily lives.
