A call for help for a Dundalk family

A call for help for a Dundalk family

Kasia Wachsmann and Mike Chaytor moved to Dundalk in March of 2018. They have two small girls, age 4 and 2. The oldest girl, Guilia has Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), an extremely rare, life threatening, progressive disease. Guilia is undergoing treatments at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto four days per week for six hours at a time. Her mother takes her to the hospital.

Mike Chaytor was operating a landscaping business, and was the only one working to support his family. That all changed this past May when he was in a serious car accident which left him hospitalized up until a month ago. He is undergoing physiotherapy and has been unable to return to work. 

Fundraising efforts are being put together and a benefit dance is being held at the Dundalk Legion on November 3rd from 8pm to 1am, with a silent auction and 50/50 draw. Admission is $5. The Legion donated the facility for this event and there are over 60 other donations.

For children there is a Party Safari on the same day as the dance, November 3rd, with a reptile show from 6 to 7 pm, and a pizza slice. Admission is $5 for kids only and payable at the door. There are no advance tickets being sold to either event.

Contact Kelly Saul for more information at 519-217-6005. Kelly would like to thank everyone who offered their help for the night of the dance and hopes everyone can come out to support this family.
