Community Raising Money for Parents Who Want to Spend Last Days With Dying Son

Posted: Updated:

As many as 2 million Americans suffer from Mitochondrial Disease.

One little boy in Stanton, Michigan was diagnosed at a very young age but his community has stepped up to help him fight for his life.

4-year-old Breylon has been fighting to stay alive his entire life.

He has been in and out of the hospital since he was about 4-months-old but never lost his smile.

Breylon left the hospital for his last time and is now home on Hospice.

His community is stepping up to raise money for his parents so they can spend his last days at home with him.

A spaghetti supper is going on tonight until 8:00 at the First Baptist Church in Stanton.

If you cannot make it to the fundraiser and would like to help out the Senn family, you can mail a donation directly to their address at 23534 Almy Rd. Howard City, MI 49329.
