To end the day, there will be a free will offering pig roast and silent auction Sat., Sept. 23 at 6 p.m. at the Elks Club, 123 3rd St. SW in Sidney to benefit Jamison Whiteman, son of Jamie and Leslie Whiteman of Sidney.

Jamison Whiteman is the cutest 8 year old boy you will ever meet with the biggest smile around. Jamison has had a long road of surgeries, treatments, tests, doctors, etc. When Jamison was born 3 months early, he was diagnosed with a severe type of cerebral palsy, asperger syndrome & a vision impairment, all leaving him wheelchair bound and in pain.

At 3 months old, he was life flighted to Billings, MT where he underwent his first surgery in what will have been 27 plus in his life so far with many more in his future. Jamison has had top CP treatments/surgeries all to no avail.

Jamison had a pain pump inserted in his belly that led into his spine which his body rejected, causing many surgeries to drain huge infection abcesses in his back, a shunt put in his head then removed due to infection with many surgeries in between again, a stomach infection which caused some of his intestines to be removed, a selective dorsal rhizotomy (soldering of nerve roots in spinal cord to help with pain and loosening of muscles) which caused an entire body infection that almost killed him, just to name a few.

Jamison now weighs 83 lbs. His parents have little to no adaptive equipment or nursing care to help in the caring for their son. There is no sign of him walking and he will be facing many more surgeries and hardships in his future.

If you have a donation that you would like to contribute, call Kathy Nicholson at 406-480-9032. Please include a business card and or a brochure to be displayed with the donations. Financial donations can be made to the Jamison Whiteman benefit account at Stockman Bank.
