Donations sought for child with major heart defect

ESCANABA – Local 4-year-old Declan Vetter is currently in the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

Declan had major heart surgery on July 9 – the latest of several surgeries he has needed from a birth condition resulting in him having 1/2 a normal heart.

His friends have created an account to help with the tremendous expenses his family is incurring, and donations can be sent to: Delta County Credit Union; Attn: Declan Vetter Benefit Acct; 2600 First Avenue. S, Escanaba, 49829.

“Team Delcan” T-shirts are also available to be ordered from “Positively” on Ludington Street, with proceeds going to the family.
