Visalia Shoppers Help Raise Money For Sick Boy's Family

VISALIA, Calif. (KMPH) -

Just off of Avenue 328 in Northeast Visalia, locals gathered for a day of shopping.

The shopping extravaganza featured some of the Valley's most authentic finds.

"There are new and used items, craft items ... a lot of specialty items, and Christmas things," said Carolyn Bradford.

Bradford set up the special shopping event for a cause very dear to her heart.

In this case, it's her niece's son, five-year-old Cash Shank.

The little boy has been battling a rare form of brain cancer for more than a year.

His family says that doctors have told them, this may be his last Christmas.

"I just want to keep them at home a little bit longer with Cash, so this is one of the fundraiser's that we are doing to help make that happen," said Bradford.

Bins full of books, movies and tables loaded with homemade Valley goodies.

Bradford says most of the stuff was donated by the community.

Other goods were brought in by local business owners, who came ready to sell for the Shank family.

For new business owner, Amanda Dick, this is a great way to give back and gain some local exposure.

"I just started a month ago, so it's definitely a way to get the product out there," said Dick.

From nails to jewelry; it all helped bring in more cash for Cash.

Shoppers helped raise $1,300 dollars for the Shank family.

According to Bradford, this will help his parents stay home with Cash for at least a month, and still make ends meet.
