The Capital High School community came together today to help out a fellow student in the fight for her life.
Seventeen year old Makayla Clark is at an Ohio hospital where she is in the pediatric intensive care unit. She suffers from down syndrome and is batteling cancer.
Here at home, friends of Makayla held a hotdog sale.
The proceeds from the sale will go straight to Makayla and her family in hopes of relieving some of their finical burdens.
The group says its been overwhelming seeing how many people have come together to support makayala.
"We've got neighbors cooking hotdogs, helping us keep track of them. We've had familes from George Washington come to help us. Herbert Hoover here to help us. So we've got people all over the city helping us right now, help us get food preapred because we can't keep up," said Jenny Beck, Makayla's former cheerleading coach.
