A teacher in Liberty who goes above and beyond for her community and students needs help with medical expenses. That's why a fellow teacher and friend has started a GoFundMe page to help her.

21 news talked with Darnelle Clark about her challenges ahead and has more on how you can help.
When the pandemic first started Liberty Teacher Darnelle Clark was a bundle of energy and an inspiration to students. She started Clark's Cozy Corner to help kids who were suddenly isolated, adapt and learn virtually at home. Her enthusiastic teaching went viral.
Then early on in the pandemic Clark who has asthma and preexisting medical conditions had a extensive battle with COVID which almost claimed her life, she spending a month in the hospital, and fought back for two years.
"It affected my lungs, my heart, my colon, my nervous system, my Neuromuscular system to the point where I actually from the waist down, I had to relearn how to walk all over again, because there was paralysis," said Clark.
She returned teach students in first grade using oxygen full time for breathing, but had to stop for two more surgeries.
She is teaching again but has mounting medical bills and little money to afford a medically necessary double mastectomy. 
"I've already had previous conditions. I've already had procedures prior to this and for them to just keep piling on and then to have to come home with more equipment and oxygen. It's just the bills are astronomical," added Clark.
Clark will be off work from mid December to the end of January without pay as her sick days were used for doctors appointments and medical procedures. 
Clark welcomes prayers and any monetary help anyone can give.
A Liberty teacher started a Go Fund Me site called "Shining Some Sunshine on Miss Darnelle Clark.
It's a way for the community to donate and help this teacher who is known for being a ray of sunshine and extending a helping hand to others.
