"Dollars for Darren's Dreams"

5-year old Darren Martens.

This morning Will Martens from Steinbach stopped by the AM1250 Studio to talk to Michelle Sawatzky about their son Darren. Darren is 5 years old, he's never walked or talked, he's never even crawled. He communicates with gestures and experiences multiple seizures every day. The hardest part is that since 8 months old when the testing began -- they have not been able to diagnose what Darren is dealing with. They have decided to take him to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota -- but that will cost them thousands of dollars. They need our help. There are 3 fundraisers planned so far: Bake Sale at Clearspring Centre December 14th and 15th, a Soup and Pie fundraiser on December 21st at the Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church in Steinbach and a social planned for January 25th. If you'd like to know more, check the Facebook Page "Dollars for Darren's Dreams" - there is a link to donate from there. You can also call Anna at 204.392.3486 OR Marlene at 204.346.5552. If we all come together to help - we can make such a difference.
