Earlier this week, robbers in Long Island broke into the home of 8-year-old Eric Antos, who suffers from cystic fibrosis. They stole thousands worth of cash, jewlery and possessions, including donations that had been raised for Eric, as well as his $2,000-a-month medicines. They even stole his teddy bear, which was paid for by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Daily News reports that members of the West Sayville community have stepped up and made new donations, trying to help the family: "People are being very generous. They're being very nice," said Stacey Antos, Eric's mother.

Police now believe that the robbery may have been targeted, and the thieves may have discovered the Antos' address by a flyer passed around the neighborhood advertising a fund-raiser for Eric, who is the poster child for the Long Island branch of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Police haven't caught the thieves yet, but you can make any donations to this address: Antos Family Fund, c/o Pyrate Brotherhood, PO Box 112, Sayville, NY 11782.
