This Saturday is the Doran Family Fundraiser in Whitehall this Saturday for a young family facing one of the most difficult challenges that life can present.  Liam and Samara Doran and their beautiful baby daughter are that family.  Liam and Samara's precious baby daughter came into this world via emergency C-section at just over 24 weeks on February 7th in Missoula weighing barely over a single pound.  She will need to spend the foreseeable future in the neonatal intensive care unit as her tiny body slowly matures.  The last thing this young family needs to worry about right now is if they can afford what is sure to be a staggering hospital bill.  You can give them an assist this Saturday in Whitehall.
