Spaghetti dinner to benefit family of Cameron Homan

A spaghetti dinner and bake sale fun­draiser is planned for April 28 to benefit the family of six-month-old Cameron Homan.

The dinner will be held at Houghton Lake United Methodist Church, the cor­ner of M-55 and Knapp Road, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Donations will be accepted as the cost of the dinner. The meal will consist of spaghetti, dinner roll and cole slaw. Baked goods will be available to pur­chase.

All proceeds will help the family of Cameron Homan for expenses incurred since hospitalization.

The baby is the son of Matt and Amanda Homan, Zeeland, and the grandson of Ron and Joanne Homan, Houghton Lake, and Bob and Sherry Pabst of Charlotte.

On Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, Cameron started having seizures at the age of four months. He is currently at Devos Chil­dren’s

Hospital in Grand Rapids. Tests have been done including EEGs, MRIs and Genetic Testing.

Four years ago, Cameron’s brother, Braylen, had seizures at three months old and passed away at six months old. Genetic testing came back inconclusive at that time. This time Matt, Amanda and Cameron had a wider scope of genes tested. The results came back that Cam­eron had received a bad gene from both parents which formed a gene mutation. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this genetic disorder. Doctors can only treat the symptoms.

Matt and Amanda have been taking turns caring for their daughter, Alyssa, 7, at home, along with being at the hospital for Cameron day and night.

For those unable to attend the ben­efit dinner, donations may be forwarded to P.O. Box 716, Houghton Lake, MI 48629. For information, call Becky Pow­ell at (989) 387-1888.
