One family learned the true definition of community when they received news that changed their lives.
Alivia Burgess, 14, of Hartford, was diagnosed with stage four Glioblastoma on Jan. 13. Just days following the family’s devastating news, the county rallied together to provide support to Alivia and her family. From window paintings and signs displayed throughout businesses in the county, to donation jars, t-shirts and events and fundraisers, the Burgess family has been overwhelmed with support shown by the county and surrounding areas.
