Team Buddy is the name representing the communities and individuals that have come together in recent months as part of a widespread effort to support the family of Braden Miller – a local student at New Lothrop High School diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine giloma (DIPG), a rare form of childhood cancer.
Miller, seven, has received support through several local fundraisers – including bake sales, park benefits and a breakfast held in Mount Morris.
On April 22, Team Buddy has organized another breakfast at the Mount Morris Fire Department. The event goes from 9 a.m. to noon, and features bottomless pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage.
Along with the meal, the team promises a 50/50 raffle and pictures with the fire truck and ambulance.
The meal costs $8 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. Those planning on attending can reach Midge Gooch, administrator of the Team Buddy GoFundMe and Facebook pages, to donate an auction item or ask further questions.
