ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany man wants you to support a little boy fighting for his life.

Easton Blanchard suffers from muscular dystrophy and last year lost more than 19 feet of his small intestines after his body rejected a transplant.

Rusty Reed saw his story on our news and decided to hold a Gospel music fundraiser for Easton.

"I would like for everyone to look over a their child, whether they're in the bed asleep or doing homework, thank God you've got a healthy child, then go to the mirror and ask yourself why you can't get in the car on a Saturday afternoon and come out to the Fish Camp," Rusty Reed, Organizer.

The concert starts at 6PM Saturday at the Fish Camp on Gillionville Road. They'll sell barbeque plates and they ask for a $10 minimum donation.
