Double benefit helps two Elkhart families battling medical problems

A benefit in Elkhart Saturday helped two families battling medical problems.

Little Mikyla Howard is going to have her 3rd open heart surgery. Folks came out to support her, raising money with carnival games, a bake sale and a karaoke contest, among other activities.

Mikyla's family appreciates all the support during an emotional time. "This time they're gonna go in and scrape tissue off of her heart and if they have to scrape too much, she'll end up having to wear a pacemaker for the rest of her life," said Christine Butterworth who hosted the benefit.

The benefit also helped Danny Edmonson, who's battling stage 4 colon cancer.
