Benefit For Elijah

Over the past five months a Fond du Lac boy has been in and out of Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee dealing with a rare kidney disorder. Sarah Freund is the mother of 22-month-old Elijah. She says Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome doesn’t have a cure. At best they are hoping to find a treatment that will lead to long term remission. She says Elijah is a typical boy, but he has a rare disorder. She says he likes to run, and play with his cars and trucks and little toy hammer that he carries around with him everywhere.  She says the only time he isn’t happy is when he isn’t feeling well. She says that can be heart breaking. This Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be a benefit at Ascension Lutheran Church on County Road V in Fond du Lac. It will include a brat fry, bake sale, silent auction and raffle. There is also a Go Fund Me page.
