A Lewis County newborn is fighting for her life in a Pittsburgh hospital. Friday evening, people joined together in the hopes that the power of prayer will help little Oakley Kirkpatrick overcome her battle with pertussis, otherwise known as "whooping cough".

At The Way of Holiness Church in Buckhannon, people prayed for Oakley so she could pull through.

Family and community members who were at the church Friday said a miracle is possible. "They're just so thankful that God's working in her life and we expect a miracle. We really do," said Frances J. Dempsey.

If you would like to help the family with donations, you can donate online or through Citizens Bank in Weston.
