Charles City rallies behind first-grader

Posted: Updated:
CHARLES CITY (KWWL) -

One Iowa town is rallying behind one first-grader.

Ribbons are everywhere in Charles City -- tied in support of seven-year-old Jenessa Pattern.

Jenessa was diagnosed on Saturday with meningitis, and doctors didn't think she would make it through the weekend.

But despite the seemingly impossible odds, Jenessa is still fighting for her life at a hospital in Iowa City.
