MCKEESPORT, Pa. - Hundreds of people braved snow and cold temperatures Saturday night to support a local boy fighting cancer.
Dyllan Botti, of White Oak, was recently diagnosed with pre-B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He has received chemotherapy and blood transfusions at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and is a candidate for a bone marrow transplant.
A spaghetti dinner fundraiser in Turtle Creek was organized to support the brave young man.

There were more people there tonight that I did not know than there was I did know. It’s so wonderful to know we have such an amazing support system.
