MEDINA – The family of Bob Hiller is completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from the community for the Medina resident who is battling cancer.

On Saturday, staff at Medina Central School and friends put on a basket raffle to help Hiller and his wife Lee with medical expenses.

“It was a tremendous success,” said Barb Michaud, who helped organize the fundraiser with Lisa Bitsas and Lisa Prentice. “The community was very generous and we want to thank them.”

The Hiller’s daughter Bailey poster her appreciation on Facebook.

“Thank you to everyone who came out,” Bailey wrote. Thank you to those who may not have been able to make it but continue to send my parents notes of encouragement and prayers. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the donors, big and small, the meals and the visits. It’s easy to get discouraged by the constant trips to Roswell, the disappointment that this therapy might not work, the infusions, the transfusions. But to see the love and support from all of you guys is amazing. He continues to push forward and we love your continued love and support.”
