You're definitely not going to be able to sit through this without crying!

At the end of last week, high school principal Courtney Vashaw had the unfortunate duty of revealing her cancer diagnosis to her students.

And while having to share that news must have been heartbreaking for everyone involved, the senior class at the Profile School in Bethlehem, New Hampshire decided to do something a bit more heartwarming for their principal.

On Wednesday, the seniors selflessly announced that they were going to forgo their class trip and instead donate the $8,000 raised to Courtney's cancer treatment!

The recent grad started her high school career off a little different than her peers — a homeless youth with a pregnancy before she even began Freshman year — but that didn't hold her back.

Despite the stereotypes that go with being a teenage mother, this teen mom was able to not only graduate, but she was the Valedictorian of her class!

Trameka just graduated from Wendell Phillips High in Chicago this past week, and her outstanding grades and extracurriculars as a cheerleader and AP student earned her an unbelievable number of scholarships.
