EUPORA, Miss. (WCBI) – The Maben community came together to raise funds for a baby boy with a rare condition.

Brantley Blessike was born on August 25th but just three days later he suffered a stroke. The stroke caused baby Brantley to have brain damage and he stayed in ICU for 7 days fighting for his life.

Doctors still haven’t found the cause of Brantley’s stroke.

Now the community is doing everything it can to support the Blessike family by hosting today’s fundraiser in nearby Eupora.

Doctors believe Brantley has a rare genetic disorder that has yet to be diagnosed.
