x (Do not use) Local News - -

An expecting mother and military father in Waverly needs your help this weekend.

Becca and Daniel Potter are expecting their first son, Ryker, to be born at the end of October.

But even before Ryker enters the world, family and friends are preparing, as Ryker has a condition called Gastroschisis.

He will need surgeries and several months in the NICU.

“He’s been diagnosed with Gastroschisis, which is his intestines, along with some of his other organs are on the outside and they’re being exposed to the the amniotic fluid,” said family friend Heather Tice.

To help deter costs, family and friends of the Potters are hosting a benefit tomorrow from 3PM-9PM at the First Arena in Elmira.

There will be a spaghetti dinner, raffles, auctions, bake sale, and more.

Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at the event.
