One of our officers with the Prineville Police Department, Officer Clayton Hagen, and his family, could use our support (both emotionally and financially) and more importantly, our prayers now and in the coming months.
Officer Hagen and his wife, Chelsie, recently welcomed "Baby Bristol" to their beautiful family. Bristol, at just 3 months old, has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
If you are able to and would like to help this family with a monetary contribution, you can do so at the local Prineville Branch of Mid Oregon Credit Union. An account has been set up under the name of Clayton Hagen, Bristol's father, that will give the family access to funds immediately while in Portland caring for their daughter.
There is also a GoFundMe that you can donate to for future expenses. You can donate through the GoFundMe account set up under "Help Baby Bristol Fight Leukemia."
Bracelets and window decals "Praying for Bristol" will be available for the community to purchase in the coming weeks. In August, a softball tournament is planned for Aug. 17 and 18, and a dinner/auction is in the works for Aug. 24 at this time.
Life for those we love and hold dear can change in a heartbeat, and so can the above-mentioned fundraisers. The Central Oregonian will do its best to keep updated information on the ongoing fundraisers in support of this family.
45 Away, 234th Army Band Centennial Tour, is holding a free community event hosted by Heart of Oregon Corps this Wednesday, July 10 at Pioneer Park Amphitheater from 1 to 1:30 p.m.
