MEDFORD, Ore. — A local nonprofit charity called Tumor Hater, hopes to take some pressure off the family of a young girl suffering from a rare disorder.

On Tuesday, the nonprofit organization gave a check for nearly $7,000 to a 5-year-old girl named Madison Branaugh.

After months of online sales and a big fundraising event that involved a meet and greet with ABC’s former Bachelor star Juan Pablo, Tumor Hater raised thousands of dollars to help Madison’s family with medical bills.

“The wheelchair alone that we are getting for her is almost $2,500 and the money from Tumor Hater and the community is going to help with that wheelchair,” said Madison’s father Shawn Branaugh.

Tumor Hater will be at Lithia Toyota in Medford this weekend selling merchandise on Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m.m to 1 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tumor Hater will also be selling merchandise at Champion Raceway on July 5, and will have a Tumor Hater night on July 22 at the Medford Rogues game.
