RUTLAND, VERMONT --The MSJ community is rallying support for Nolan Alberty, age two and a half, who is battling leukemia. Nolan's mom, Mary (Crawford) Alberty graduated from MSJ in 2002. She was a wonderful student and athlete, and helped lead her varsity basketball team to a state championship in 2002. Her sisters Katharine and Sarah also graduated from the Mount.
Mary went on to marry Matt Alberty and they currently have two sons. Nolan is the older of the two. Nolan was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) before his second birthday. Recently, MSJ had a "jeans day" to raise funds to help with costs incurred by Nolan's treatments.
The MSJ women’s basketball team has decided to dedicatenight's semifinal game at the Barre Auditorium to Nolan. The Alberty family has sent along blue wristbands that the team will be wearing at the game. Royal blue is Nolan’s favorite color, and the team members will also be wearing royal blue socks.
