Volunteers Help To Raise Money For Little Girl

MEMPHIS, TN -(localmemphis.com) - The cost of organ transplants can often cost more than half a million dollars.

And because of that many families are not able to get the treatment they need.

Today a group of volunteers came together to raise funds for 2 year old Brooklyn Faris.

They did this with a rummage sale.

All of the money will go to help pay for a liver transplant for Brooklyn.

"She’s on special formula…she’s on special medication and vitamins so lots of co-pays, lots of out of pocket expenses and then our transplant is out. Insurance will cover it in Chicago so...so we have lots of travel that we do," said Jesse Faris, Brooklyn's mother.

Faris said she is overwhelmed by all the kindness her family has received.
