Helping Hands: A garage sale for Mia

by: patrick sherman, Mia Hunt

The family of Mia Hunt, a 15-month-old Oregon City girl battling a recurrence of cancer in her kidneys, is holding a garage sale benefit to raise money to pay for her ongoing treatment.

Organizers will be happy to come pick up saleable items, and all the proceeds from the sale will benefit the Mia Hunt benevolent account, established through Washington Mutual.

'If you have items that you would like to donate to this fundraiser, that would be greatly appreciated,' said Tracy Cristofaro, Mia's aunt. 'If you have nothing to donate, but you would like to help us put this together, we'd really appreciate that, too.'

To make a donation, call 503-702-2809 prior to Sept. 27. The garage sale will be held the weekend of Oct. 7.
