A young boy named Daniel from Auburn Hills, Michigan, is in need of a life-saving surgery after being diagnosed with complex congenital heart disease. His uncle, Mirek Skomski, has expressed the family’s desire for Daniel to receive the best care possible and to alleviate the financial burden. Community members have rallied behind Daniel, with donations pouring in through a GoFundMe account that has already raised over $130,000, nearing its $150,000 goal. The Auburn Hills Police Department has also lent its support by spreading the word on social media. Skomski has expressed his gratitude for the overwhelming support, highlighting that the family has never asked for assistance before and that the love they are receiving is remarkable.
