Bowling for Myles event to raise money for procedure to fix lungs

(WXYZ) - On September 26, there's a bowling event for Myles, a 17-year-old from Roseville.

Myles was just a baby when he contracted a virus that attacked his white blood cells. He was on a ventilator for seven months before coming home.

Eventually, he was taken off the ventilator at home and also the tracheotomy.

Myles' lungs are so damaged that he needs a double lung transplant, but that won't even help.

His family found a doctor in Tampa at the Florida Lung Institute, that can use a procedure to heal Myles' lungs.

The family is looking for help because insurance doesn't cover a portion of the procedure.

They are holding a bowling benefit to help raise money.

It's happening at Bonanza Lanes in Warren on September 26.

It's $20 including three games of bowling and shoes. There is also other surprises and a 50/50 raffle.

For more information or to register for the event, call Tina at 586-339-5439 or Jeremy at 586-822-5361.

To donate, a GoFundMe page has been set up to help Myles get the treatment he needs.
