ELKHART — A recent fundraiser for a cancer patient helped a family overcome some financial hardships.

According to the family of Kelly Crimaldi, nearly 550 people attended a fundraiser at Christiana Creek Country Club.

Crimaldi is recovering from surgery and other post-operative treatments after being diagnosed with a brain tumor last fall.

The family expressed appreciation for the support and issued the following statement: “Due to the generosity of so many, enough monies were raised that night that our financial burden is no longer a burden. We can move forward with Kelly’s future medical care, knowing the last five months of costs are behind us. We are so very blessed.”

New York health officials are known for holdings drills on handling emergencies, and Ebola is no exception. Bellevue, the country's oldest public hospital, had been preparing for an Ebola patient in earnest since August. Ebola came to New York via Dr. Craig Spencer, who had been treating patients in Guinea. Spencer alerted his aid agency that he had developed a fever, and was transported to Bellevue by specially trained emergency workers cloaked in protective gear. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)
