A six month old little girl in our area is suffering from a form of heart disease called Taussig Bing syndrome. The condition is so rare, it affects only 200 people in the country.
On Sunday, people from her community came out by the hundreds to support her.
The Cottage Corner Restaurant in Salem held a spaghetti dinner, where they fed over 600 people. All of the money raised will go directly to Addie Dotson, to help cover the expense of multiple heart surgeries that she'll have to get.
Andrea Jackson, owner of Cottage Corner said, "We just ask that everyone keeps her in their hearts and in their prayers. Just be there with the family, just that love and support."
Family member Misty Bordener said, "It just means the world to the family, to see everyone come together and do these things for her. The fundraiser, the donations, the prayers."
Her family is asking that you like their face book page called Addie's Prayer Warriors. You can also make a donation through that.
