JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- People gathered in the Back Mountain area of Luzerne County to raise money for a 3-year-old girl battling cancer.

The fundraiser at the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department near Shavertown helped collect money for Emily Longmore. She has stage 4 neuroblastoma, a form of cancer that typically affects young children.

Friends have already raised more than $30,000 since February.

Hundreds of dinners, as well as basket raffles and a silent auction, helped raise even more money for Emily's brave battle with cancer.

A GoFundMe account has been set up.
