A candlelight prayer service for a boy battling cancer for the second time in his young life will be held Saturday night in Clinton.
The battle against the disease by Joseph Dillman, 10, of Clinton, has inspired the community, which has embraced both him and his family as they continue the fight. He has been named an honorary Clinton police officer and led the Clinton High School football team onto the field during a home game last season, and he has received several other designations and accolades.
Just last month, the Second Annual Joseph Dillman Lawn Mower Race organized by Clinton Police Officer Jason Stokes was held.
The candlelight prayer service will be held Saturday, July 11, at 9 p.m. at Jaycee Park in Clinton, and everyone is welcome. Attendees are asked to bring their own candles for the service.
If you would like to donate to the family to help offset his medical expenses, you can visit the Pray for Joseph Dillman page on Facebook for more information, or if you don’t use the Internet or Facebook, you can send donations to the Joseph Dillman Fund at 102 Moccasin Hollow Lane, Clinton, TN 37716.
