MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

The BeeHive Salon in Murfreesboro held a benefit concert and cut-a-thon Sunday to raise funds for an infant battling cancer.

Sadie Layne Smith, an 11-month-old, is undergoing chemotherapy for a type of cancer called neuroblastoma.

She has a mass on her abdomen that is attached to her spine.

There was a cut-a-thon, silent auction, kids zone, and other activities.  Eight different musical acts performed and food trucks were also on site.

One hundred percent of the proceeds raised will go toward the family to help them with Sadie's medical expenses.

Tracy Tucker, owner of Beehive salon, said, "They went from two incomes to one so the mother can stay with Sadie while she is at home.  Part of the medication she is on, one of them, is $5,000 a month and the other is $500 a month, and that is even with a co-pay."

Sadie's family says they are staying optimistic.
