A treasured Mother's Day gift will help a Hampden family

HAMPDEN - Celebrate your family, while helping someone else's

Folks in the town of Hampden are rallying around David Smith, who has been diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy.

A rare nuero disease with the same characteristics as dementia, and has no cure.

This weekend being Mothers Day, event organizer Monica Raye thought what better way to cherish and support families, than with a family photo session, and the price is one everyone can agree on.

"Actually there is no cost" according to Raye "we want anybody to come and donate what they can. Then we have an incentive, if you do donate more than sixty-dollars, you'll get a free future session with Danielle Pease"

All donations go directly to the Smith family.

Sessions will be held both Saturday and Sunday in the Hampden Academy multi purpose room.

To schedule yours, call Monica at 207-951-7493.
