HILLSDALE, N.J. — Two years after her father beat leukemia, 7-year-old Olivia Vanderhoof of Hillsdale was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

The second grader will be out of school for several rounds of chemotherapy treatment over the next five months.

The community has been supportive through and through.

Hillsdale mom Jenny Pourakis launched a meal train just after Olivia's October diagnosis, which has people signed up to cook through March 2017.

The meal train has helped bring in more than $20,000 in donations.

To bring a smile to the youngster's face, the Hillsdale Police Department debuted their moves to Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop The Feeling."

A community-wide video from staff and faculty at her school, along with the police and fire department, was made last week.

More than $15,000 has been raised on a GoFundMe site launched for Livie.

Community members have also started the #WeGoForO hashtag, being sold on green bracelets.
