Community rallies behind child with rare cancer

"It's village people taking care of village people," Casey said. "We're getting lots of donations."

Joe Lazare is offering $4,000 credit toward a car at Lazare Kia to be raffled off along with other prizes at the fundraiser, according to those organizing the event.

Village Mayor Frank Leak said the recreation center will be provided free of charge, and the tables, paper products and other supplies will be donated by the town.

"We're doing our share for the family," Leak said. "Whatever they need."

Brandow said his son's pediatrician, who has many years of experience, has never before encountered the cancer that has afflicted his son.

"It's a rapidly growing form of cancer. It's a very rare form of cancer," he said.

Brandow said he is thankful and appreciative of anything that will come of the upcoming fundraiser.

"It's great and wonderful," he said. "We are fortunate enough to have good people."
