Fundraising efforts underway for local girl diagnosed with leukemia

A 10-year-old Cranbrook girl was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

Olivia Potorti and her parents were off for treatment in Calgary at the Children’s hospital the very next day. So far, a GoFundMe campaign has raised $20,000 of the $25,000 goal in two days, with all fundraising going towards assisting expenses associated with her treatment.

Friends say Cranbrook has shown amazing support and generosity. Olivia was nominated to receive part of the proceeds of the recent Eagles Charity Challenge Boxing Event and a local crossfit gym dedicated an event in her honor and collected donations to assist with the fundraising efforts.
