Doing Good: Southborough family holds yard sale on Saturday to raise money for pediatric cancer research

[Ed note: This is the latest in the Doing Good series which features stories of Southborough residents who are doing their part to help the causes they hold near and dear.]

When Southborough third grader Gabrielius Bazikas was 3-1/2 years old, he was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). Now nine years old, Gabi is a cancer survivor and he and his family are giving back to those who helped him get healthy.

On Saturday, May 19, the Bazikas family will hold a yard sale at their home at 22 Atwood Street, with all proceeds going to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. In addition to the usual yard sale fare, they’ll also have coffee, homemade cookies, and lemonade. The sale runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Next month Gabi and his family will take part in the PMC Kids Ride in Westborough, a bike-a-thon that raises money for the Jimmy Fund. You can help the family reach their $500 fundraising goal by making a donation on their fundraising page.

It’s wonderful to hear of these stories where people ‘give back’. They are not obliged, and yet feel compelled to provide that support. We’ve seen it at our forum, and it’s great to see it in your community as well.
