Fundraiser to help family of Sycamore toddler
SYCAMORE – A fundraiser in Oswego Sept. 14 will help a Sycamore family defray medical bills.
Maxwell Weigand was born to Michael and Jamie Weigand July 7, 2012, with a life-threatening condition called persistent pulmonary hypertension in newborns. He spent most of his first month in the neonatal intensive care unit. At one time Maxwell was the sickest baby in the unit and a doctor told his parents the best thing they could do was pray.
Maxwell is a fighter and turned around quickly, going home 28 days after his birth. But the bills from his hospital stay, plus follow-up doctor visits and ongoing physical and developmental therapy services, have taken a toll on his family’s finances. Michael Weigand works at the YMCA and at Fox Valley Sandblasting and Powder Coating, and Jamie Weigand works at Catholic Charities.
