Family: $8,000 stolen after fundraiser for Brewster boy's surgery
After being robbed of $8,000 for their son?s reconstructive ear surgery, a Brewster family is finally rejoicing.
In response to the theft, the Vincent Crotty foundation gave the Sullivans a $7,000 check to help pay for their son?s surgery.
According to Tim and Colleen Sullivan, their 9-year-old son, Aiden, was born without a right ear due to a rare congenital facial disease and needs three corrective surgeries.
The Sullivans say a group of Connecticut firefighters raised $8,000 during a fundraiser for Aiden, but at the end of the event, someone walked off with the money.
The family plans to have the first surgery in March.
