Rummage sale benefits a child fighting Cancer

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A rummage sale held Saturday benefited a child fighting Cancer.

Clothing, books, and other items were donated from people in the community. There were even baked goods and concessions. The sale was in honor of Westside Elementary fourth grader Evan Rose, who is currently undergoing treatment for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

He was diagnosed this past January after he had his tonsils removed. The sale was put on by Temple Baptist Church, to help with the family's needs while Evan goes to treatment at St. Jude Children's Medical Hospital.

"It's great to know you have friends, family, and a community that will pull together in a time of need because we never know when it could be one of us." says Misty Colburn, who volunteered at today's sale.

Organizers say people lined up outside before the doors even opened, and hope to raise as much money as they can for the family.
