A silent auction is being held to help the Fernie family of a two-year-old, diagnosed with cancer.

In late November 2012, 2 1/2 year old Lily was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Though Lily's prognosis is very positive, her journey to recovery will be a long one with two years of ongoing treatment in Calgary.

At the moment her mother Sheri and Lily are full time in Calgary and father Jordan and brother Brodie, 6, are traveling to Calgary every weekend to be with their family.

The silent auction for the Lily Earl Fund will be hosted online on the Fund's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LilyEarlFund

It ends 5pm on December 17th.

All proceeds go to the Fund to help cover costs associated with Lily's ongoing treatment.  For those wishing to donate directly to the fund, CIBC is accepting donations under the Lily Earl Trust account.
