SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) - The Second Baptist Church of South Hadley played host to a benefit for a family fallen on hard times.
Kris and Seth Cragan live with their seven year old son Eli in the Northampton area, but over the past few months, their health has taken a difficult and expensive turn.
Overnight, Kris Cragan found herself in a battle for her life against bacterial meningitis and encephalitis.
Just weeks later, her husband had a heart attack.
The family told 22News what all the support means to them.
"How do you describe something like that. It's just incredible. The people, the prayers, the support. We have out close friends put updates on Facebook daily. We go on every day and people encourage us," Elizabeth Swedberg said.
All the money from the benefit goes directly to the Cragan family to help them cover the cost of medical expenses.
You can donate to the family by sending a check to their church and putting the Cragan family name on the envelope.
