Annie Bartosz lost her twin brother at the age of 12 to cancer. It was a tragic time in her life, but she's turned something negative into a positive through the G9 Foundation. 

On Wednesday, the Christian Education Leadership Academy was recognized by Annie and her family for raising over $7,000 for childhood cancer research. 

As a part of that recognition, Green Bay Packers' own Blake Martinez surprised students and answered questions about his life and faith. 

Martinez himself knows the effects of childhood cancer, after losing one of his best friends to the disease at a young age.
