Friends & family will be holding a benefit for Dylan Morrison on May 18, 2013 at Waterford Mennonite Church on St Rd 15 south of Goshen, IN. Doors will open at 4 p.m. For this event, we are selling wristbands for $5, which will be your entry ticket, as well as showing support for Dylan. The evening’s activities include food, silent and live auctions and children’s activities such as a bounce house and dunk tank. Your business could assist us in making this a successful event by donating items for the auctions, gift cards, or monetary gifts towards food or other expenses for the evening.
Dylan Morrison is an 11 year old boy who was first diagnosed with Thyroid cancer in 2009, at which time he had extensive throat surgery at Riley’s Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis to remove it. He has been cancer free until January 2013 when, during his scheduled 6-month checkup, doctors found the cancer in his throat, and has now also spread into his lungs. Dylan’s mom, Rachel Spencer, and dad, Matt Morrison, are planning a trip with Dylan to the Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, PA to hear the doctor’s plans for throat surgery. The family is awaiting a prognosis for the lung cancer.
Rachel works in a housekeeping job and rents a house in Goshen, and Matt works in a Goshen factory. Matt has health insurance through his work, but Rachel, Dylan & his 3 younger brothers are being covered by Medicaid. We are holding this benefit in order to help with finances so that the family won’t need to worry about Dylan’s health care expenses, and there will be money for his medical needs in the future.
Cash donations may be made to the Dylan Morrison Benefit Fund at any Interra Credit Union branch. Item pick up may be arranged by calling the number below. EIN #90-0935482
