PHOENIX -- Most four-year-olds' greatest worries consist of who they have to share their toys with and how many more bites of veggies they have to eat before dessert.
But little Olivia Dodson, of Gilbert, Ariz., has a bit more on her plate.
Last March, Olivia was hit with a ball at daycare. The accident left a bruise. It took a while to disappear, which led her parents to notice other bruises that also seemed to linger.
Olivia was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a rare and severe form of the disease usually only found in adults.
After four chemotherapy treatments, six months in the hospital and a life-threatening infection, Olivia is finally on the mend. But the recovery from chemotherapy isn't an easy one, which is why the Dodson family is asking for help from the Arizona community.
On Sept. 7, The Nash in downtown Phoenix will host "Jazzed for Olivia," in an attempt to help raise money for the Dodson family. The event will even feature "American Idol" singer Jacqueline Dunford and jazz guitarist Pete Gitlin.
Tickets are $40 per person with 100 percent of the proceeds going to help pay for the cost of Olivia's treatment.
