A freewill pancake and sausage breakfast will be held tomorrow morning from 7–11 at the Farmer American Legion Hall to benefit the family of Alexander Tressler, the 10-year-old son of Shana Tressler of Defiance County, who was severely injured in a fire on Oct. 8th.
The little boy received third-degree burns to about 30 percent of his upper body. He was in the hospital for four weeks and received extensive skin grafting, and will require more skin grafting in the future.
He’s a fifth grade student at Fairview Elementary School, but will not be able to return to class until after Christmas at the earliest. For the time being, he is receiving home tutoring.
Alexander is receiving physical therapy and home nursing assistance, but he has a long way to go.
Tomorrow’s breakfast will include scrambled eggs, fruit, orange juice, milk and coffee, along with pancakes and sausage. There will be a silent auction too. The benefit is being sponsored by the TGIF of the Farmer United Methodist Church.
