Bullard Pulls Together To Help Young Resident

A community came together today, to help out one of its youngest residents.

Two year old Micayla Graham has a congenital heart defect. She is taking daily doses of Viagara as part of an experimental treatment insurance will not cover.

Today, more than 300 people showed up at the First United Methodist Church in Bullard to raise money to help pay for her care. Her parents, who are not even members at the church, say the community's support has been overwhelming.

"It's just great the way God has moved in this community. Words can't express our appreciation for what has happened; the way the people have backed us, and the way God has pulled us through what we've been through," says Raymond Graham.

More than five-thousand dollars was raised today.

A fund has also been set up at the Texas National Bank in Bullard to help with medical expenses not covered by insurance.
