Expecting to find a child in distress, Roberts instead found a gym full of children and members of her family.
“We love you and want you to know we’ve got your back,” Owens told Roberts as she was led to a seat.
Fourth and fifth graders sang the first verse of the song, with the younger students joining in for the chorus, the East Oregonian reported.
The children waved daffodils, which they presented to Roberts.
Roberts said the students have been very supportive as she went through her treatments. Four siblings pooled their money to buy her flowers, and one boy brought her his favorite toy car, the East Oregonian reported.
“Every day has had silver linings,” Roberts said. “The kids have been so sweet.”
