Read more about a mid-September fundraiser in Grand Forks planned for little Teagan Leehan of East Grand Forks at http://www.ndad.org/fundraisers.asp — NDAD’s Community Fundraisers page.
Teagan, the daughter of Lyndsey and Drew Leehan, had two liver transplants — the first failed — earlier this summer in Minneapolis. She was born with a liver disease known as biliary atresia and required a temporary procedure at 2 months old to extend her life.
NDAD, a charitable nonprofit started in 1975, is a statewide resource for community fundraisers that provide assistance for medical bills, pre-existing bills and other costs related to health challenges. NDAD provides consultation, acts as custodian of the funds and pays expenses from the fund as directed by the fundraiser chairperson. Because NDAD is a 501(c)(3) organization, donations are tax deductible if the person, group or business making the donation itemizes taxes. See http://www.ndad.org/fundraisers.asp for more information, including background about current community fundraisers.
