A local north Abilene bar is using NFL's biggest weekend to help raise money for a little girl with a rare heart condition.

17-month-old Addison Grace was born with only one heart chamber and underwent open-heart surgery. A month later, doctors found a tumor in her abdomen.

For her young age, Grace has gone through 25 rounds of chemotherapy and six major surgeries. To help with the family's medical expenses, The Station is holding a fundraiser from live bands to silent auction all weekend.

Organizers set a goal of $5,000 and as of Saturday night, have already reached $6,000. During the Big Game on Sunday, the bar will be raffling special items such as a gun.

Grace was released from the hospital Saturday and will be recovering in Dallas.
