WAUSEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Hundreds of people showed their support for 7-month-old Abram Brown and his family Friday.

Abram was diagnosed with a rare stomach disorder shortly after he was born last November. Doctors gave him six months to one year to live.

Friends and family put their worry aside for a night to hold a benefit for the Brown family, to not only help with medical bills, but also to celebrate Abram's life.

"It's good to come out and celebrate a life of a little guy that won't have a full one, so it's good to smile and see people in the community," said Abram's mother Sara. "A lot of people have made us laugh tonight, so it's been wonderful."

The Browns said they are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and would like to thank the entire community.

To donate to the cause, you can mail:

Brown Family Benefit
c/o Farmers & Merchants State Bank
PO Box 337
Wauseon, OH 43567

You can also contact Cathy Drummer at 419-572-1922, or Randi Wudi at 419-337-5481.
