Fundraiser to be Held for Young Dixonite with Neurological Disorder

"Devan was diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy in October of 2011," according to the Tribune.

 

We received the following flier on Wednesday about a fundraiser for Devan Cox. If you haven't heard about Devan's story, here's a bit from the Dixon Tribune:

Devan was diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy in October of 2011. CIDP is a rare neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. The disorder is caused by damage to the myelin sheath – which covers and wraps around and protects nerve fibers – of the peripheral nerves.

Here are the details of the fundraiser: 

The friends of Devan Cox are hosting a fundraiser to help raise funds for Devan’s medical expenses and ongoing needs.  The fundraiser will be held Thursday, January 31, 2013 between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m. at Pizza Guys in Dixon, 1455 Ary Lane.  Mention you are there for the fundraiser, and 15% of your sale will be donated to Devan.  There will be a raffle with numerous prizes, and bracelets supporting Devan are being sold for $5.00 each.
