Bargain shoppers are hitting up Northwest Wichita this week all because of a little boy: Cohen
"It's very touching when people will take time out of their day and share their time and resources to help benefit such a good cause," said Jamie Museousky, Cohen's mother.
In 2011, at 20 months old, Cohen was diagnosed with cancer. He went through seven months of chemotherapy, and his mom says today, he's cancer-free.
Now, his family has put together a garage sale to benefit childhood cancer patients. About 20 families have contributed to the sale, filled with electronics, children's and adult clothing, furniture, appliances, bicycles and more. All proceeds go to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
"There's just so many people and everybody just has a good heart and give huge donations today and it's just been really, really neat to see the community come out and support this cause," said Cohen's aunt RaeAnn Wirths.
This is the second year Jamie and her husband Nick have hosted the garage sale. Last year, they raised $1,900, and this year they hope to raise $5,000.
"We have a lot that we have to sell, but it's also just great," Jamie said. "It makes me feel good to know that every dollar we raise goes to a good cause to fight cancer."
The garage sale will go from sunrise to sunset Thursday through Saturday. The house is located at 8704 W. 19th Street, located about a block east of 19th and Tyler.
