The town of Brunswick is rallying behind a 4-month-old with a rare liver disease. Click to hear KMZU’s Bob Allen talk with Nurse Ruth Fidler:
Castden Bondy was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia, a disease that causes blockage in bile ducts leaving the liver, shortly after birth. According to Fidler, Bondy will need a liver transplant in the near future, but has yet to be placed on the transplant list. Fidler says a free-will dinner and auction taking place Sunday was designed to offset medical expenses for the family. Items in the auction include gift baskets, St. Louis Cardinals Tickets, Autographed NFL and NASCAR memorabilia, and Passes to Schlitterbahn Water Park. Money raised during the event will help cover medical and travel expenses for the family.
The event takes place at Brunswick High School and starts at 11:00 a.m. with the live auction beginning at 1:30
