HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – WKBN shared the story of a Hubbard woman’s struggle with rare disorders.
Kristina Bayus needs life-saving surgery, and the only place in the world that performs it is in Germany. The travel and surgery will cost her around $50,000.
Now, Kristina’s father, Mike, is helping raise money to get his daughter the treatment that she needs.
Saturday, he was at the Shop and Save in Hubbard. He is hosting a 50/50 and cash prize raffle.
He said names will be drawn on Memorial Day.
The other woman that they are helping is Bailey Reardon. She also has a rare disorder, similar to one of Kristina’s.

“She’s an advocate for others who are suffering rare diseases, and she just recently reached out to a girl who has one of her symptoms, and we’re helping her with fundraising,” Mike said.
A fundraiser raised $3,857 for Bayus on Saturday.
