Cadillac Boy Fundraises for People with ALS After Grandpa is Diagnosed

A little boy in Cadillac is looking to make a big difference with a fundraiser in honor of someone dear to his heart.

Ben Anderson is in fourth grade at Saint Ann’s School.

He loves making decorative glass garden sticks — and now he’s doing it for his grandpa.

His grandpa, Jon Anderson, was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS, earlier this year.

The garden sticks are for sale by donation at Grahek’s Greenery in Cadillac.

“To get a cure and help them figure out,” said Jon Anderson’s Grandson Ben Anderson. “He’s had troubles walking and talking but he’s doing good.”

Grahek’s says Ben made 90 dollars for the ALS Association with the fundraiser yesterday.
