Jersey Proud: Toms River community rallies behind young girl with cancer
The town of Toms River is ready to fight for one of their own.
Six-year-old Sofia Colavito has been battling cancer for the last two years after being diagnosed when she was 4 years old. Colavito is keeping the disease at bay, but the battle is still ongoing.
To help her family with medical expenses, Toms River is hosting a craft and carry fundraiser on Wednesday at Battle River Brewing from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Colavito’s family is also sponsoring a 5k run next month for the cancer center at Chop.
To help or follow Colavito’s fight, check out the family’s Facebook page “Fight with Fi” or CLICK HERE.
