NEWPORT, N.C. (WNCT) – After endless fundraising efforts, a family in Newport now has some new wheels to help take a sick 4-year-old to treatment in Durham. Javon Oates has Pfieffer’s Disease.
We first told you about his family last month. Last week, Javon finally had enough money to buy a reliable vehicle to transport him to Duke Medical Center for treatments.
The old van constantly broke down and routinely did not work properly, putting additional pressure and stress on Javon’s family during transports.
Javon will return to Duke later this month for a crucial surgery.
