Cortland community comes together to raise money for kindergartner with leukemia

Local News

A community is coming together to raise money for a very sick Lakeview Schools student.

Aiden Elder is in kindergarten and was diagnosed with leukemia about two years ago and more recently lymphoma.

During a basketball game at the schools, they raffled off donations to raise money for Elder. Organizers say the money would go a long way for his treatment.

“He has a long road ahead of him and we just wanted to come together as a community and help him and his family out in this time of need,” said organizer Lauren Dejulio.

So far they’ve been able to raise around $4,000 for his care.
