LEESBURG, GA (WALB) – Dozens of people came together today to raise money for a little boy battling cancer
Last month 6-year-old Hartwell Faircloth was diagnosed with leukemia. This morning Lee County Auto service and The Lee County Explorers held a car wash to help the family with expenses.
Every week Hartwell's family makes the long drive to Augusta where he receives treatment.
The money raised from the car wash along with donations will help ease the financial burden on the family, who is grateful for the support.
"Very expensive going back and forth to Augusta every week for the next three years. Lee, Dougherty, Worth have come together and supporting us with fundraisers, shows and everything," said Kayla Dollar, Hartwell Fairloth's Mother.
The current treatments are preparing Hartwell for a planned bone marrow transplant in the coming weeks from his sister.
Next Saturday they're holding fundraiser at the Quickie Restaurant on North Slappey, and a concert with five bands at the State Theatre.
