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.
At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
