Make donations for children with cancer

A Nashville woman hopes you'll help her raise money for a girl with cancer.

9-year old Emily Warren of Berrien County is at an Atlanta hospital having her second dose of chemotherapy for Non-lympho-blastic leukemia.

Libby Ives and her church are collecting tabs off soft drink cans to donate to Ronald McDonald House locations.

She's also selling bracelets that say "pray for Emily Warren."

"Knowing there's sick kids out there that it's hard on their families to go through this and knowing we can help somehow it's a great feeling," said Libby Ives, a Liberty Church member.

Liberty church is also taking donations of stuffed animals that the pastor plans to anoint and send to children with cancer.

You can drop off donations at these locations:

Liberty Church-7148 Lenox Alapaha Road,Alapaha, GA 31622

Dogwood Pharmacy- 501 North Davis Street, Nashville, GA 31639

Here are some folks to contact for more information:

Libby Ives (229) 599-2947
