ROCHESTER – Representatives from the FLED Foundation presented 17 bags of children’s clothing, toys, blankets and two baths to the Golisano Children’s Hospital this morning.

The FLED Foundation raises funds and awareness to fight childhood leukemia, and also supports families affected by the disease.

FLED – Fight Like Elaina Dixie –was formed in memory of Elaina Webb of Albion, who was 2 ½ when she passed away on Feb. 7 after battling leukemia for nine months. She is the daughter of Kyle and Beth Webb of Albion.

“We are truly thankful to our supporters and we are in awe of the generosity shown with these donations,” she said.
