Fundraiser helps pay girl's medical costs

Posted: Updated:

A spaghetti fundraiser was help Sunday to raise money for an 8-year-old girl dealing with a condition called precocious puberty. The condition causes children as young as seven or eight to begin going through puberty.

It can be emotionally an physically difficult for children and is usually caused by an underlying health problem.

In this case, an MRI showed a benign tumor on Ashlynn's pituitary gland. In order to control her hormones, she needs an implant that can be difficult.

Ashlynn's mother Stephanie Larberg is grateful. "I'm so blessed and happy to have such a great support system. Never would I have expected this sort of turnout."

You can donate to help Ashlynn by going to the GoFundMe site or at area Fifth Third Banks.
