(Utica, NY – June 2013) A benefit will be held on Sunday July 21 from noon to 6 p.m. at The Celtic Harp for Devin Charles (Zbytniewski) Tooke born on April 7, 2013 to Chad Tooke and Jennifer Zbytniewski.
Devin was born 6 weeks early with an Omphalocele (Liver and Intestines inside the umbilical chord and outside of the belly), enlarged left ventricle in his heart, under developed lungs and a few other minor defects that will be corrected with surgery. Devin is currently unable to breathe without the use of a ventilator and will require many different surgeries.
Doctors have stated it will be a long road and that Devin will be spending the summer at the hospital. Although he has had a rough start to life he is expected to have a normal life once surgeries can be performed.
All proceeds raised will go directly to benefit Chad, Jennifer and Devin.
