NH Town Puts Up Holiday Lights in Honor of Boy With Cystic Fibrosis, to Raise Awareness
It’s a magical time of year, and in Stratham, it’s no exception.
The Stratham Volunteer Fire Department is helping to make a 10-year-old boy’s holiday a little brighter by teaming up with Lights for Lives.
According to Stratham Lights 4 Lives' website, this organization is sponsored by the fire department to fundraise for a deserving family in need in the community. This year that family is the Sweeney’s, whose 10-year-old son, Liam Sweeney, is living with cystic fibrosis.
Seacoast Online got a chance to talk to the family who shared their appreciation for everyone that put their lights up to raise awareness.
The article says that Liam and his siblings will get to see the town from the best seat in the house… on top of a Stratham fire truck. They’ll also get to be the judges for the home decorating contest and award the winner of the “best lights”.
This will be a nice break from Liam who has to take 30 pills a day to manage his disease, Seacoast Online reports.
Stratham Lights 4 Lives is also hosting an open house on Sunday, December 15th from 11am to 2pm at the fire station where the grand prize winner will be awarded and kids can even get a visit from Santa.
