A spaghetti supper being held Sunday in Bangor will benefit the family of a 10-year-old boy who's spent half his life battling cancer.

Family members say Dylan is a special guy, who's fun loving and smart, despite the fact that he's been battling cancer since he was five. With only one working lung, he needs oxygen 24 hours a day, and struggles to breathe. And at this point in his treatment, all doctors can do is keep him comfortable. He spends most of time sleeping, and often worries about how his illness is affecting his family.

So a dinner and silent auction are being held this weekend to help ease the financial burden and help him to know his Mom will be alright. The menu includes spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, and dessert. It costs $7, or $3 for children 10 and under.

There will be a 50/50 raffle, and a silent auction with some great items up for bid! You could take home 4 Black Bear Hockey tickets for a game on October 7th, 2 tickets to the soccer revolution game at Gillette Stadium, DJ service for a wedding or party, or a professional photography package! Plenty of restaurant and retail gift cards will be up for auction, as well.

The dinner and auction will be held this Sunday, August 21st at the Bangor Grange Hall, 1192 Ohio Street in Bangor, from 5 to 7 p.m. What a great chance to have a yummy dinner and give some peace of mind to a boy who's had to deal with too much in his young life.
