SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — A Caddo Parish schoolteacher needs your help as she fights a rare cancer.

Doctors have diagnosed 33-year-old Diana Crosby with adrenocortical carcinoma, which attacks the kidneys and liver.

This type of cancer is so rare, doctors are using expensive experimental drugs to fight it.

Crosby, who teaches at Midway Elementary in Shreveport, is at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

A musical benefit to help raise money for her treatments will be held Saturday at Union Spring Baptist Church, 702 W. 71st St. in Shreveport.

Crosby’s family members and friends hope she will be able to attend.
