ROSE CREEK, Minn. - A Rose Creek toddler battling a rare genetic disorder is one step closer to seeking medical treatment in Germany.
The family told KIMT they are now halfway to their $20,000 goal.

Cora Jean Rubin is living with Primary Lymphedema, leaving her extremities painfully swollen.

After two years of medical visits and potential treatment here in Rochester, and what the family believed to be no real answers, they decided to look overseas for medical attention.

They need to raise $20,000 before they can book tickets to Germany, where they will visit a doctor who specializes in Cora's disorder.
