The Twin Ports are rallying around a local family dealing with a very rare disease.

Seven months ago, Amelia Baker was diagnosed with OMS. It's an incurable auto-immune disease only one in 10 millions kids have.

Amelia is in the middle of intensive treatment and Sunday a benefit in Superior raised money to help with medical bills. Amelia's family said they'll tell her about this overwhelming community support someday.

"People go through a lot of really bad stuff," Lee Sandok Baker, Amelia's mom, said. "It just goes to show that overwhelmingly people are good, and I really hope that we can just teach Amelia that and really pay this back."

If you want to help the Bakers, Lee said they appreciate prayers. You can also give to the Amelia Joy Baker fund at the National Bank of Commerce in Superior.
