Fundraiser for 10-yr-old boy with terminal brain illness

Friends of Dietrich Crosby are holding a fundraiser on Saturday, March 13th to help pay the medical expenses for the 10-year old Cache Valley boy who is suffering from a very rare terminal brain illness known as NBIA. The symptoms associated with the illness are very painful and have required many surgeries. His latest hospital bill was $415,000. Through it all, friends say, Dietrich continues to smile and he and his mom, Dad, brothers and sisters keep a positive attitude. The fundraiser will take place at the Smithfield A&W Saturday between 10:30 a.m. and closing time and all proceeds from the day will be donated. There is also an account set up at any Zions Bank to help raise money for Dietrich.
