Bridgeport mother marks 1 year since daughter’s death with fundraiser

A fundraiser is being held tonight in honor of a Connecticut infant who died one year ago.
Kaidy Marie Lainez was only six months old when she succumbed to a rare form of cancer known as hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, or HLH.
The baby's mother is now trying to raise awareness about the disease, which can be either acquired or inherited and is triggered by infections.
The fundraiser will be held at Vazzy's in Bridgeport at 7 p.m. All proceeds from the event will go toward fighting HLH.
