Fundraiser Helps Cancer Patients

STAUNTON, Va (WHSV) -- It's estimated that more than 15,000 children and teens will be diagnosed with cancer in 2014. As local kids work to fight the disease,
Raygan Batton was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma when she was 24 months old.
She celebrated her final day of in-patient treatment this Friday.
A fundraiser called "Dub'n in the Valley" is helping others fighting the disease find joy during treatment.

The fundraiser raised money for “Bricks for Leukemia," which gives toys to kids with leukemia.

Batton's caretaker says she is thankful for support from the community.

"It's the community that keeps you going. On bad days when me and Raygan, we were like 'heck, we can't keep doing this,' and then people would post something on our Facebook and they were like 'Okay, we can do this Raygan, we can do this,'” said Donna Abshire, who is her caretaker.

"They have supported us, they have prayed for us, every church in this town, we're all over the worldwide," said Abshire.
