Benefit planned Saturday for Jax Hanson of West FargoWEST FARGO – A benefit for 4-year-old Jax Hanson, son of Brook Mercer and Callie Hanson, West Fargo, is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. on Saturday at Haggie’s Bar and Grill in Mapleton.
Jax underwent an MRI on July 30 that found a tumor on his brain. Shortly after the diagnosis, Jax and his mom were flown from Sanford Health in Fargo to the Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis.
Jax will stay at the hospital for at least a month with aftercare that is yet to be determined. Because both of his parents are self-employed, the medical bills have placed a financial strain on the family.
The superhero-themed benefit will include a dinner, bake sale and silent auction.
Donations to the Hanson family can be sent to Gate City Bank in West Fargo in care of Jax Hanson Benefit.
