Just before this past Christmas, 5-year-old Jacob Ahrens' parents, Josh Ahrens and Tina Combridge, received heartbreaking news about their son. Family friend Chuck Trevino explains.

Chuck works with Josh Ahrens, and their children play together frequently. He describes what medical procedures Jacob began January 5th in Denver.

After the radiation in Denver, Jacob will return to Sheridan to undergo chemotherapy treatments. All of this, of course, will be very expensive, and to help their friends, Chuck, his wife Sarah and Desirae Harmon are hosting a for-all-ages benefit fundraiser January 29th at the Best Western Sheridan Center from 6 to 10 pm. Chuck gives us the details.

Trevino adds that many churches are donating desserts to be auctioned off as well.

If you are unable to attend the January 29th benefit, an account has been established in Jacob Ahrens' name at First National Bank in Sheridan.
