Daly Pie owner beats breast cancer, struggles to keep shop open

PROSPECT HEIGHTS -

A crowdfunding campaign is underway to help the 35-year-old owner of a pie shop stay afloat while she recovers from breast cancer.

Owner Meghan Daly quit her corporate job to start Daly Pie, but little over a year after opening she was diagnosed with cancer.

When she started the shop, Daly says she had no knowledge about how to run a business but that her friends helped her out.

Her dream was to make it a neighborhood joint, but says she had no idea that the neighborhood would come together to help her through surgery, tests and aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatment all while running the shop.

So far, the campaign raised over $40,000, surpassing its original goal.

Daly says she just received news that she was cancer free from her doctor, and that she's very close to paying her landlord back.

She says the best way to help is to buy a pie and to order ahead during Thanksgiving.
