      Hundreds turn out for Pittsfield prayer vigil

      Prayer vigil for Eva Kelly


      Hundreds of people turned out to support a local woman battling

      cancer

      Tuesday night.


      They gathered for a prayer vigil at

      The Liberty Village

      in Pittsfield.


      That's where 30-year-old Eva Kelly was transferred Monday from a Springfield hospital.


      People formed a line that led to Kelly's window, where they could stop and say a brief prayer for her.


      "The outpouring of support from people in

      Pike County

      has been amazing," organizer Michelle Garrett said. "I've had e-mails from people from California showing their love. Eva's hanging in. We're just giving her all the prayers we can, trying to make her comfortable."


      Kelly was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago, and the cancer has spread since then.
