Ashebrooke subdivision is holding a fundraiser tonight for 2-year-old Hyde Talbot, who suffers from a disease that affects only about 300 to 600 people in the United States.

To benefit research of Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, residents of the subdivision will place luminaries, or candles inside bags of sand, along their driveways. They were purchased for $10 each.

Hyde's complications began in January of this year.

"We were at Egleston [Hospital] more than we were home," said his mother, Phyllis Talbot.

She said Hyde is in need of a liver-kidney transplant.

The public is welcome to drive through the subdivision and make donations.

Another fundraiser, Hike 4 Hyde, is scheduled for April 25 at Sawnee Mountain Preserve Park. It will benefit the Foundation for Children with Atypical HUS and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

The Night of Lights takes place at 7 tonight. For more information, go online at
