"Westchester Idol" winner Jackie DiMaggio helped raise money for two girls fighting a deadly blood disease.

PELHAM - Two little girls, fighting for their lives, are getting some help from a singer in the Hudson Valley.

"Westchester Idol" winner Jackie DiMaggio staged a concert in Pelham last night to raise money for the girls.

DiMaggio performed a special song, written for Baylee and Michaela, who live out-of-state, who have been diagnosed with a potentially deadly blood disease.

All proceeds from iTunes sales go toward the girls' medical bills. "I feel like the girls really needed the inspiration and their families also, and that's why I decided to do it. Because everybody needs some hope in their life," says DiMaggio.
