A charity ride and benefit was held Saturday for an Upstate baby diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer.

Baby Lylah-Jean is less than 2 months old, and according to doctors, has only months left to live. Little Lylah-Jean was born with ATRT or Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor, which has a 3 in 1 million chance of developing and affects the brain and spine.

Many residents across the Upstate have been touched by Lylah-Jean's story, and Saturday, the community came together for a charity ride and benefit in her honor.

The charity ride began at 11 a.m. as participants traveled on bikes to Franko's Party Shop on White Horse Road in Greenville.

From there, starting at noon, a benefit was held in honor of Lylah-Jean. Attendees could enjoy hot dogs, BBQ, raffles, prizes and even karaoke, as the baby's loved ones raised money for her treatment.

Those interested helping Lylah-Jean's family with her treatment costs can donate to their GoFundMe page here.
