Family, friends and classmates are in mourning after Xavia Kieran Borys Pirozzi died of lymphoma last week. She was 16.
Pirozzi passed away March 21 after a six-month battle with lymphoma, according to Explore Harford. The Fallston teen was laid to rest Monday.
In honor of the sophomore, her classmates wore her favorite color, purple, on Thursday and Friday, according to student newspaper The Patriot.
Purple accessories such as socks, hair ribbons and shirts without designs underneath the uniform were permitted.
The school was closed Monday for the funeral mass.
This was Xavia's second bout with cancer, according to ABC2news.com.
She also received a heart transplant in fifth grade after she was diagnosed with "restrictive cardio myopathy—a rare degenerative disease, especially in children, which causes the heart to stiffen over time," according to a story in the Catholic Review.
