As one local man waits to have expensive surgery, his family is looking for some financial help.

On Sunday November 21st, the family of Damien Hill held a fundraiser at Underdog BBQ on West Lake Road.

Hill is currently in kidney failure. He does have a donor, but because of COVID he cannot have surgery yet.

Friends and family members figure that now is a good time to gather up some money for him.

“Damien has been through a lot and I can’t express as a mother of the issues you can go through and the expenses and the ups and downs,” said Melissa Carlson, Damien’s Mother.

His mother said that they are looking to start a Gofundme page in the near future which will be named #TeamDamien.
