CINCINNATI - At just six weeks old, Dominique Hill was diagnosed with a rare disease called bilary atresia. Doctors didn't expect her to live but Hill has survived with the disease for 18 years.
An aspiring actress and singer, Hill has been an active member at Future World Productions. Looking to pursue her dreams, Hill later moved to California where she worked through her illness and experienced little complications.
But when she recently returned to Cincinnati, she fell ill and now is in need of a liver and kidney transplant.
Doctors have suggest that HIll's health deteriorated when she came back to Cincinnati because of the poor climate.
On Saturday, the theater company she is a member of, will host a benefit to raise money so that HIll and her family can relocate back to California.
The theater company is located at 4910 Reading Road. The event lasts from noon until 4 p.m.
The benefit includes entertainment from local youth, a bake sale and coin drop. Lunch and dinners will also be for sale.
Donations can also be made to the Dominique Jannay Hill Living Trust at any Chase Bank.
