Benefit for young boy battling cancer

Updated: Thursday, April 24 2014, 05:42 PM EDT


A benefit fair will be held at Quaker Steak and Lube at the Highlands for Hines Rotriga on Sunday.
Two-year-old Rotriga is battling stage 4 neuroblastoma. He was diagnosed with the cancer on Dec. 26.
The Rotriga family has to travel often for treatments and have numerous medical bills. The community has come together to help the family and little Hines with his battle.
Dave Rotriga, Hines' uncle, says he is doing pretty well, but his counts are low.
"He will have to spend the day at Ruby Memorial tomorrow, but we are hoping he will be home soon," said Rotriga.
Randy Dlesk, with Budget Interiors, has donated a trip to Disney and a kitchen floor. Other donors have pitched in with gift certificates from various restaurants, cash, Brad Paisley memorabilia, items from Cabelas, and baskets with various goods.
There will be a pig roast, cookout, several bands, bounce house and face painting.
"As a father I can't imagine the pain and anguish that that family is going through daily," said Dlesk.
"Who would not want to help a young little boy fight his way through cancer?"
Rotriga says the family is overwhelmed with support from the community.
"This staff and company so special what they are doing so just come out have a good time and raise some money for little Hines," said Rotriga.
Again the event is noon-6 p.m. at the Lube in Ohio County, W.Va on Sunday.
