ROSEMONT, Illinois — A North Side church was the setting for superheroes on Sunday afternoon as they raised money for a 3-year-old boy who was battling a terrible illness.
All Saints Cathedral Polish Nation Church hosted its second annual “Austin’s A-Team” event Sunday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. benefiting Austin Rose – aka AJ – who has Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia Type 6, or PCH 6, a Rare neurological disorder that has been diagnosed to make moving, swallowing and other physical activities difficult.
There are only 40 diagnosed cases of the disease worldwide, meaning research into how to manage the disease is limited and AJ has to travel to Ohio to receive experimental treatments.
If you or someone you know would like to help AJ on his medical journey, a GoFundMe page has been set up to help his family cover medical expenses.
