CAMILLUS, N.Y. -- The Camillus community enjoyed some Elvis inspired music Sunday while helping a young girl in need.

Baby Daniella Disque was born with Biliary Atresia and recently had a liver transplant. A local 20-year-old woman donated 25 percent of her liver after seeing Daniella's story on Facebook.

As soon as she met the family she felt an instant connection and hopes others will look into being donors as well.

"With today's doctors and the surgeons you know you go through the surgery and I am living proof that you're perfectly healthy after. Only you saved another life. Some people will have complications, but in my eyes, it is totally worth it," said Alexa Marucci, Organ donor.

Money raised from the event will help cover costs associated with the transplant surgery and recovery.
