Fundraiser helps pay for infant's new heart

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A community is banding together to help a family struggling through good times and bad.

Andrew Hagewood was born with a rare heart condition, but thanks to an organ donor, the child has a new heart.

While he's doing better, the medical bills are starting to pile up.  That's why one restaurant in Goodlettsville hosted a fundraiser to help pay those bills.

Andrew's father, Keith, says this past week was a great one.

Andrew has finally started to breathe on his own for the first time since he was born 10 weeks ago.
