PARIS, Ill. (WTHI) - We have an update to a News 10 special report, Beyond the Reflection.

We introduced you to 30-year-old Kara Kirby.

She lives with frontotemporal dementia, or FTD.

Sunday, people came together to support her and her family.

There was a benefit dinner at Saint Mary's Church in Paris, Illinois.

There was also a hog raffle, bake sale and silent auction.

All the proceeds will benefit the Kirby family.

FTD is a type of dementia that impacts younger adults.

There is no cure.
