Bl. Chiara Badano
Even though she was a diligent student, this young Italian schoolgirl struggled with her education and had to repeat her first year of high school. On top of that she had to deal with classmates teasing her for her devotion to Christ. Thankfully it was this faith in Christ that enabled her to cope with her painful terminal cancer and face death without sadness at the age of 18.
