Daniel Esposito, 15, of Mint Hill, shows off one of the wristbands he’s been selling at Independence High School and St. John’s First Baptist Church in Charlotte to raise funds for his friend Corson Hicks, who is undergoing treatment for bone cancer.

Daniel has raised $1,300 in a little more than two months, said his mother, Elaine Esposito. The funds will go to Levine Children’s Hospital’s youth center, and Corson, 15, will have a say in how the money is spent.

Daniel’s mother said he didn’t do this for the attention: “Daniel has stuck with Corson throughout the entire friendship, and we’re proud of him.”
