Community Sports: Ex-Carson High athletes host fundraiser for baby

Owen Brolsma and Ally Davis were well-known athletes at Carson High, and now they need your help.The young couple gave birth to a boy, Brooks, who was born with a congenital heart disease seen in one in 120 babies. Brooks, who was born three weeks early, also was born with Patent Ductus Arteriosus. Brooks had his first surgery when he was just 2 weeks old, and he was put on a ventilator to get much-needed oxygen.Brooks spent a month on the ventilator and now has a tube in his nose to help him breathe. However, Brooks’ nose was too small for the tubing to work properly, so he needed a tracheostemy.There are a few more surgeries on the way, and the young couple has a stack of medical bills facing them.There is a golf tournament scheduled for Oct. 7 at 8:30 a.m. at Empire Ranch Golf Course.
