CHATFIELD, Minn. - Gabby Brown was recently diagnosed with leukemia shortly after her 1st birthday. Her parents own the restaurant 'Estelle's' in Harmony. They're receiving support from all over Southeastern Minnesota after Gabby's diagnosis.

At Chatfield Lutheran Church, a candlelight prayer vigil was held from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. for people to offer support and prayers for the Brown family and other families affected by cancer.

"This is a chance for us as a community to hold them, to embrace them in prayer and in love so that they know they don't just have to depend on themselves. They can depend on God and us to hold them and give them strength and hope," says Pastor Mark Dochen.
