Sydney Marino, the nine-year-old daughter of N.C. Highway Patrol trooper Kirk Marino, showed flu-like symptoms over Christmas. Upon examination by her local pediatrician on December 26, Sydney was referred to Levine's Children's Hospital and was admitted there the same day. She has been diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia and is currently in phase two of her chemotherapy. Hundreds turned out Saturday to meet Sydney and support the fundraising efforts to help offset the cost of treatment. For more information, visit:  -or- visit the Facebook page: Support Sydney
