3-month-old Wes Ryan's fight for life has inspired a Lewiston community to come together to support one of its youngest residents.

Tonight a benefit for baby Wes and his family to help with medical costs was held.

The fundraiser, held in honor of Monica Senese who died suddenly nine years ago, is held every year to help a family or person in the community in need.

Wes' family is hopeful that the baby will return home in August.
