Help Jeremy Borlin Kick Cancer Fundraiser June 27



A 9-year-old Stevensville boy is currently being treated in Texas for brain cancer that has spread to his spine, and the community is being asked to help his family. Jeremy Borlin is going into 4th grade at Roosevelt Elementary School in the fall in Stevensville, and is undergoing treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Patty Overton is a family friend who takes taekwondo lessons at Sidekicks with Jeremy and says there will be a silent auction and fundraising dinner next Friday, June 27 from 4 to 8 pm at Lake Michigan Catholic School on Washington.

Listen:



Other items include a Maytag vacuum, a flute, trumpet and saxophone and a Rolling Video Games birthday party package. Borlin's father works for Whirlpool, and the KitchenAid items have been donated by co-workers for the auction. Charlie's Piggin' N' Grinnin' will provide the food. It's $8 per person, $25 per family, and children under 5 eat for free.

Borlin is receiving surgery, chemotherapy and radiation in Houston, and Overton tells WSJM News they are shooting for the stars with the June 27 fundraiser.

Patty's daughter Savannah also takes taekwondo with Jeremy and says the kids there have gotten involved to help raise money.

Donations to the Borlin family can also be made at any United Federal Credit Union branch and online at YouCaring.com by searching for Jeremy Borlin. Updates are also posted on Facebook, and we will have the link to that page posted as a comment to this story on the WSJM Facebook page.
