Hundreds showed up at a pasta benefit dinner to support a Poland baby dealing with a rare disease on Sunday.

The dinner was held at Saint Charles Church in Boardman.  Proceeds will go to help offset medical costs for the Diaz family.  Their eleven-month-old son Jackson was born with Apert Syndrome. Apert Syndrome is a rare genetic mutation that causes deformities of the head, feet and hands. The family travels to Boston and Philadelphia for his medical treatments.

Jackson is scheduled to have another surgery on his hands on June 23rd in Boston.
