The community is stepping up to help a 4-year-old from Greenwich who is fighting cancer.
Willa Kosh is so full of life that one would never know she's battling leukemia.
"She was diagnosed May of this past year. The day before Mother's Day actually," said her mother, Tina Carpenteri.
Carpenteri says Willa was tired and complaining of leg pain.
"The first six months are definitely the hardest," she says.
Willa is now getting steroid and chemotherapy treatments.
"She does have a port. So, she gets chemo through her port and now she actually takes chemo daily at home," said Carpenteri.
Tina Carpenteri is a co-owner of Garden Catering. In honor of Willa, Garden Catering is raising money for The Golden Lights Foundation - a local organization that finds and funds cutting-edge research related to  pediatric cancer.
"For the next week and a half or so, we're going to be selling coupon booklets that have four different coupons for the month of March. And the $5 from the purchase of that booklet will go back to the Golden Lights Foundation," said Carpenteri.
Garden Catering has already reached a chunk of its goal.
Doctors say Willa is turning a corner and her prognosis is good.
"So what do you like about your brother?  Whenever I get hurt, he's nice to me," said Willa.
Willa turns 5 years old next month and believes she has plenty to sing about.
