Community raises money for Baldwinsville girl with cancer


he Baldwinsville community showed an outpouring of support at a benefit to help Hally Krolik, 7, who is battling a rare form of kidney cancer.

The family is hoping to raise four thousand dollars to help offset her steep medical bills.

Monica Krolik is Hally's Mom. "It's completely humbling knowing that this many people wanna get together to help my baby girl and help my family. The positive energy is everywhere," says Krolik.

Despite the mounting medical bills Hally's family is seeing


Hally will be donating some of her own money back to SUNY Upstate. She's making bracelets out of rubber bands to sell at her own benefit and she's giving half of the money through these sales back to Golisano Children's Hospital as a way to thank them for everything they've done for her.

In February, the Make-A-Wish foundation and M-and-T Bank are sending Hally and her family to Disney World. The trip is planned after Hally finishes her chemotherapy in January.

Frank Krolik is Hally's Dad. "E

so it would be remarkable to hear the news that finally stuff turning our way

," says Krolik.

Hally's teachers at Baldwinsville elementary school are now planning a second benefit to help her with medical bills this December.
