A fundraiser was held Friday night for a nurse practitioner at Strong Hospital who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. 

Desiree Stockholm is a nurse practitioner in neurology at Strong Hospital. In January, she was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. The cancer has spread. She's heading to Los Angeles for a risky surgery, not available anywhere else in the U.S. and she needs help raising money to cover her expenses.
 
The event was held from 7:00p.m. to 11:00p.m at the Fit Gym on West Commercial Street in East Rochester. Tickets are $25 at the door.
