Dozens attend Liverpalooza to help Jones County 10-month-old baby

Posted: Updated:
JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Dozens of residents and friends came out to Jones County Junior College for the Liverpalooza benefit on Saturday to help 10-month-old Emily Ishee.

Emily was diagnosed with biliary atresia in December and is currently in Birmingham awaiting a liver transplant.

Many supported the cause and took part in a 5k run, enjoyed live music, games, a silent auction, and plenty of food.

"Her parents have spent the entire time in Birmingham, both of them work here at the junior college," said Emily's grandfather, George Harrison. "They've spent time off from their job and you know, it's just very expensive. They definitely need a little support for incidental expenses and so forth."

If you would like to help out, a benefit account for Emily Ishee has been set up Community Bank.
