Fundraiser held for Webb City boy with rare heart defect


Family, friends and fans of a boy who needs a new heart showed their financial and moral support at the VFW in Webb City on Sunday.

Dylan Waggnor was born with a rare congenital heart defect and eleven years later Dylan is still waiting for a new heart.

The event included a silent auction, food and live music.  All proceeds went to the Waggnor family to help with Dylan's medical expenses.

"With the whole heart thing, it's the valve I guess, physically, I can't really do much physically, but other than that I hold up well," says Dylan.

"It's all of Dylan who's had problems since the day he was born, been a roller coaster ride for this family and hopefully he's going to come up with a heart," says event organizer Wayne Medley.

The VFW had to open up a second parking lot to make room for more than 200 guests.
