A Cumberland County girl who is battling leukemia was the inspiration behind an incredible fundraising effort by a state representative.
Rep. Adam Harris (R-Juniata) raised $241,000 in a 10-week period to become the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year.
Harris was inspired by 9-year-old Ashlyn Brysiak, whose father works at the state Capitol.
Teresa Spittle raised $105,000 and was named the society’s Woman of the Year.
The 11 candidates for Man of the Year and Woman of the Year raised a total of $794,625.
