The 13-year-old girl was a babysitter for Eva and her brother this summer. She wanted to help the family by having a bake sale. Word is spreading fast.

They’re planning a bake sale for Saturday, Sept. 7 starting at 9 a.m. at 310 N. Heatherstone Dr. All donations will go directly to the Sherbondy family, to help her with surgery costs and her recovery.

"I think Sun Prairie in general.. People care about each other. you know they will do what they can to help for sure," Rochelle Ehlenfeldt, Kylie's mom, said.
