A fundraiser will be held for two-year-old Grace Sharp, who has a rare form of cancer that affects the lungs and kidneys.

The Commercial Hotel will host a fundraiser on Saturday night to help her family deal with the costs of her treatment.

The night will include a series of auctions and raffles of items donated through the generosity of local businesses.

Local musician Isaac Compton will perform live music throughout the night, with proceedings starting at 7pm.

Grace was initially diagnosed with a metastatic rhabdoid tumour, a rare and aggressive cancer, in November 2015, and after 16 months of treatment she was cleared, only to be diagnosed again four months later.

Event organiser Rachel Wykes said the money raised would help Grace’s parents Sarah and Keiran with the ongoing costs of staying in Sydney to give Grace the best possible treatment.

“Grace’s parents are down at Westmead Hospital with Grace, getting her the care she needs, so we are raising money to assist them because it’s a terrible situation they find themselves in,” Ms Wykes said.

Those who can’t make it on Saturday night can still donate to the cause by visiting www.gofundme.com/graces-fight.
