Thousands of people are trying to help a southwest Georgia hospital, devastated by the March tornado that tore through the small town of Americus. Its patients and staff survived; however, Sumter Regional Hospital lost all of it's equipment.

Now, the hospital is in the running to win a new MRI machine through a medical company's online contest. You can vote for Sumter Regional Hospital at www.winanmri.com. Scroll through the list of hospital videos to Sumter Regional Hospital. You can vote every day, but you'll have to watch the hospital's 2 minute video first.

The contest ends December 31. So far, Sumter Regional Hospital is leading with more than 86,000 votes.
