Posted on Sunday, August 13, 2017 07:31 AM

A local family says they're in urgent need of donations to help their daughter get spinal surgery in Ottawa.  

An online fundraiser set up by Jennifer Kennedy says they need to raise $5,000 to help cover several trips to Southern Ontario to correct a curve in their daughter's spine. 

It's raised over $1,200 and Kennedy explains they're aiming for $1,500 to pay for their first trip next month. 

"We are unsure of exactly how many pre and post-op trips we will need but this surgery is scary for us all," The post on GoFundMe explains. "The grants that we can get only cover a small portion of what we truly need."
