Fort Lupton organizations and area residents rallied behind Sevryn and Sydny Johnson recently, raising $4,000 for them on Saturday, Nov. 19.
The two local sisters are battling Wolfram syndrome, a potentially fatal form of diabetes.
Residents held a fundraiser dinner event at the Brighton Boys and Girls Club, with money raised from a silent auction, raffle items, donations and entrance fees.
“It is very encouraging for us. We’re going to keep it going,” said Elana Johnson, the girls’ mother.
