Ruth Burton, a beloved teacher at Courtney Christian School in Hammond, is hospitalized with COVID-19 and fighting for her life.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to raise money for her treatment and family medical expenses.

“Both husband and wife are teachers and have given so much to their community through church and school alike. They love on their community so much, and now it’s time we love on them,” said Amanda Lightfoot, the campaign organizer.
