WEST SENECA, NY - In today's Good Story Challenge, a heartwarming update to a story we first brought you last week.

Remember the story about Potters Road Elementary School student Breanna Raisor?

The second grader woke up blind one morning last year.

Tuesday, she had surgery in Boston to remove some of the tumors that caused her blindness.

Well, there's great news from the family, they say the surgery was a success to remove the tumor.

Breanna is still in Boston recovering while her classmates in West Seneca continue to show their support.

Thursday night at the school's Winterfest, relatives and staff sold "Believe in Breanna" t-shirts and bracelets to help her family with the expenses.

"It's amazing," says Pattie Gallagher, Breanna's Teacher. "Honestly, it's transformational. I think it's really changed our building. It's changed the children in my classroom. It's changed every adult that's come into contact with her. Her parents are amazing."

The shirts sold out last night -- another sign of the amount of support Breanna has.

We wish her the best in her recovery!
