The family of a girl with ties to Mid-Michigan has a simple request for help in her battle against a scary disease.

Eight-year-old Hayden, who lives in Oregon, has a rare form of bone cancer.

She was diagnosed this past week and begins chemotherapy on Monday.

Hayden loves dogs, especially German Shepherds.

Her sister, who lives in Saginaw, says pictures of dogs will help Hayden smile during treatment.

She started the Facebook group Hugs for Hayden and wants people to post pictures of their dogs in the group.
