SCRANTON, Pa. -- A baby girl battling health problems got some support from a group in Scranton.
Each year, the Fraternal Order of Eagles donates money from its annual chili cook-off to a cause. This year, organizers are raising money for Mason Rose Sharkazy.
Mason's mom Shannon tells Newswatch 16 her daughter was born several weeks premature back in September, and has been battling several conditions requiring medication and treatment ever since.
"The odds of her having this was one in 1.2 million, so it's kind of like she's the guinea pig for everything, and the support and love we've been shown during this horrendous time has been more than we could have ever anticipated," said Shannon Sharkazy of Scranton
Basket raffles also raised money at Saturday night's chili cook-off in Scranton.
