Car wash raises money for sick teen

The I.M.A. International Budokan dojo donned buckets and sponges to raise money for 15-year-old Melony Sengchanh.

Several weeks ago Melony found out a hole in her heart was sending blood clots to her brain, which were pressing on her optic nerve and causing her to lose her sight.

Event organizer Sheryl Cates explained, "We're just trying to get donations together to help the family. Just to help the family. It's a gift of love and that's what it's all about is love, family and everybody doing together."

If you want to donate to help Melony and her family, you can donate at any US Bank under the Melony Sengchanh or Sheryl Cates fund.
