-A A +A

Dec. 19 brought neighbors, family, coworkers and the community together at Pritchard Community Center to show support for 14-month-old Brooklyn Disselkamp. A benefit concert featuring The Brian Young Band helped raise funds for Brooklyn’s fight against Neuroblastoma cancer.

Admission to the concert was free with any monetary donation to Brooklyn’s Believers, a network of family and friends supporting Brooklyn and her parents, Daniel and Erin Disselkamp. Family and friends gathered to sell Brooklyn’s Believer’s T-shirts and Christmas ornaments and an auction consisting of donated items also was held.

The Disselkamp’s received news about Brooklyn’s condition during Thanksgiving. She has completed initial chemotherapy and was scheduled for another treatment Christmas Eve.
