Neighbors host bake sale to benefit mom with cancer

Sioux Falls, SD (KSFY) Friends and neighbors of a Sioux Falls mom battling cancer worked hard to help support her and her children.

These local families spent the last few days baking dozens of treats and other goods to sell in their neighborhood on Saturday.

The idea was inspired by their neighbor Rose, a single mother of four young kids who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma last month.

“We have a really wonderful neighborhood that is real supportive when they heard the kids wanted to put this on, they all pitched in and made a lot of extra goods to donate to this sale today,” Heidi Thomas a friend of Rose said.

The neighborhood kids were able to sell all of the items they made at Saturday’s bake sale.

They plan to host more bake sales over the next few weeks.

Friends also started a GoFundMe page for Rose and her family, which has raised about five thousand dollars.
