ORAN, MO (KFVS) -

The Oran community will come together Saturday help a little girl battling brain cancer.

Saturday evening from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. an event will be held to benefit Morgan Hobbs-Kinder.

Morgan is just five years old, but for the last two years she's been undergoing treatment for a brain tumor. Unfortunately, family members say her prognosis isn't good.

A benefit Saturday at the Oran Knights of Columbus Hall will serve fried chicken dinner with all the fixings to raise money for Morgan and her family.

The cost is $10 a plate.
