BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – When Taylor Ash opened the front door to her home on Thursday evening, she was greeted by dozens of voices singing carols. They all came together to offer support for Ash as she battles bone cancer.

“It’s really good to know that I have the support of my community,” Ash told CBS4.

Members of the Summit High School choir and other volunteers gathered to lend their voices to help bring a smile to Ash days after her surgery to remove the tumor in her leg.
