Ever since her 58-year-old grandmother was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer, Emma Williford has been wanting to help.

Emma, who is 7, and her mother Sarah moved into the older woman's house to help care for her.

The little girl and the older woman are very close and it's been difficult for the child to understand that her grandmother needs rest and can't be with her all the time.

Her first idea was to sell all of her Christmas presents to make money for her grandmother's medical bills, but her mom wouldn't let her.

She then came up with the idea of baking cookies and cupcakes and selling them.

The bake sale fundraiser will take place Saturday at 8 a.m. at South Walton First Baptist at the Bay Church, 24388 U.S. 331 in Santa Rosa Beach.
