The state of Ohio now says there's definitely an abnormal amount of childhood cancer cases around Clyde and Green Springs, about 50 miles east of Toledo. The 18 families involved in the study want answers quickly, but state and county health leaders say they're moving as fast as they can.More >>
CLYDE, OH (WTOL) - Hundreds packed the Clyde High School supporting the Hisey family's fight against cancer. Their daughter Tyler Smith had leukemia and just recently their son Tanner has been diagnosed with leukemia as well. The fundraiser featured chicken meals along with live and silent auctions.
"This community really sticks together when somebody's sick. They really step up to the plate and help them out," says organizer Deb Davenport.
"Clyde is a very caring community and when somebody needs help the community gets behind them and does a great job," says Dave Hisey.
Both of the Hisey children are part of a state study into why so many children have cancer in the Clyde area.
To donate to the family, call 419-639-2270 or make donations at the Croghan Colonial Bank in Clyde under the Tanner Hisey Benefit Fund.
