A benefit brunch has been planned for a 2-year-old diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer called Wilms' Tumor.

Kinsley Williams is the daughter of Josh Williams of Clarksville and Kelcey Williams, who resides in Omaha where Kinsley has received radiation and chemotherapy treatments since her diagnosis in February 2013.

Kinsley's aunt, Jessica Williams of Cedar Rapids, said Kinsley had surgery to remove the tumor at Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha.

She said her niece's prognosis is good, and that she's having the last of her chemotherapy treatments this month.

Family members have organized a fundraiser, "Dad's Belgian Waffle Brunch," which will be held Sunday, Aug. 18 at Heritage United Methodist Church in Waverly from 11:15 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Waffles, sausages, flavored syrups and beverages will be available with a freewill donation.

All proceeds will be donated to Kinsley to help with her treatment and recovery.
