Great music for a great cause all to bring people together to help save a life.

Eight year old Toby Bigelow was diagnosed with leukemia in December last year.

He was having persisitant pains in his ankle and finally they went to a doctor to get them checked out..

"In the beginning I wasn't worried about the hospital bills and the prescriptions and things like that.. but you know it's after the initial shock wore off of the diagnosis that you know bills start rolling in and you think..this is a lot," said his mother, Tabitha Bigelow.

Family and friends wanted to do something to help and then came their break, bring back former frontier grad, Anthony Mossburg to help save the day.

Mossburg said, "It's just a cool opportunity for me to do what i love to do for a family that needs a little support."

He is a musician based out of Columbus who was happy to come home and help out a great cause and the family couldn't have felt more blessed with the turn out.

Bigelow said, "We are blessed to have everyone here with us, traveling down Toby's road to a cure."

This is only the beginning for Toby's road to recovery, considering he could undergo chemotherapy for the next two years.

But with strong community support, Toby will never have to fight alone.

Event Coordinator, Cammie Loane said, "Everybody loves Toby, even if they don't know Toby they love Toby and I think it's just really important as a community, close kni,t that we need to pull together and help people out."

The Bigelows are so thankful for the support and on a happier note- Toby's wish from the make a wish foundation was granted and the whole family is headed to Disney World.
