Fundraiser for Stoneham Boy With Sleep Disorder

The Stoneham Independent reports that a fundraiser will be held on March 7 to help pay the medical bills of Connor Dirks, who has Kleine-Levine Syndrome.

The Stoneham Independent reports that a fundraiser will be held on Thursday, March 7 from 7-9 p.m. at Faith Quest Community Church, 50 Central St. in Stoneham, to help pay for the medical bills of Stoneham resident Connor Dirks.

Dirks, 13, has Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS), a rare neurological disease that can cause him to sleep for up to 26 hours at a time. Dirks has undergone tests, the Independent reports, many of which were not covered by the family's medical insurance.

Those wishing to donate raffle items for the fundraiser should contact Caroline Colarusso at 781-279-1197 or by e-mail at notforgotten3@gmail.com.

Those who cannot attend the fundraiser can mail donations to:
