Homerun derby raises money for Lily Roth, a 6-month old with rare skin disorder

A homerun derby was held in Eastport to help a little girl fight a rare disorder.



Lily Roth was born with a skin disorder known as congenital melanocytic nevus.



The 6-month-old faces years of plastic surgery to replace skin abnormalities with healthy skin to reduce her risk of skin cancer.



Her first surgery is scheduled for Oct. 16 in Chicago.



Officials say only an estimated 600 people in the world have this condition.
