Event Sunday will aid Aaron Welch and his recovery, he's a real fighter
space
Seven-year-old Aaron Welch is a fighter.

The youngster, badly burned in an accident, is back home again after grueling treatment at a Madison burn center, and will be the focus of a benefit carnival Sunday.

It will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Peter Lutheran Church, N2891 County Rd. S, at Polar.

Aaron was burned when candle wax dripped onto to his shirt and ignited the clothing he was wearing. His older sister, Mikayla, saved his life by spraying water on him from the kitchen sink.

He sustained burns to 21 percent of his body, in the areas of his chest, arms, chin neck and back and was taken to the University of Wisconsin Hospital. Since then, he has undergone several skin grafts along with physical therapy and faces a long recovery process.

He will continue going to back to Madison for therapy and follow-up treatments.

The carnival will include some great food, including brats, burgers, hot dogs, cotton candy and Culver’s frozen custard.

There will also be fun, including a book sale, silent auction, children’s games and face painting.

Entertainment will be provided by LYVE, an acronym for Langlade Youth Vocalists and Entertainers, and Angela Cook with Zumba fitness.

All proceeds will assist the Welch family with expenses not covered by insurance. Additional funding is being provided through the Thrivent Financial Care Abounds in Communities program.
