(ABC 6 News) -- On Sunday, a Mower County community came together to raise money for a girl with a rare condition.
2-year-old Cora Jean Rubin was born with lymphedema which causes swelling in her arms and legs. Her parents are working to raise the $20,000 they need to get Cora specialty treatment in Germany.
They held a special fundraiser at the Rose Creek city hall with a silent auction, petting zoo, and music.
Cora's mom expressed her gratitude to the community, "We really appreciate the love and support. It's overwhelming, it's heartwarming, it's amazing. It just shows you what being a part of a small town can be about"
The family has raised a little more than $16,000 and plans to make the trip to Germany in August.
