Our Town Kid to Know is family's hope

EFFINGHAM, Ill. (WCIA) -- The sounds of Our Town's Kid to Know are of a healthy little girl.

She's battled a lot during her first two years of life. Annaka Robison underwent a liver transplant earlier this year. The donor was a family friend.

Annaka is doing well and learning new things every day. She was born with a condition which required her to get a new liver. She spent three months recovering from surgery in Pittsburgh.

One thing the family never went without was hope. They say the community did everything it could to help.

There have been countless fundraisers and events for the family. Thousands of dollars have been raised as well.

The Robison's say they want to thank everyone who's contributed to the support of their family.
