The community of Marlow is pulling together to help a local family, Barry and Cherokee Rohrbough, as they are facing a struggle in the medical health conditions of their little boy, Brantley, 5. He was recently diagnosed with Lupus and many challenges have added to their worries, including kidney concerns and a mini-stroke.

Every day brings a new set of worries and challenges for the Rohrboughs. It began Dec. 3, 2022, when Brantley was diagnosed with Lupus, which is considered extremely rare. Since then, he has been in the hospital more than at home – with everything from pneumonia, infections, seizures and more. He was transferred from Duncan Regional Hospital to Cooks Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where he had a small stroke and they discovered blood clots throughout his body. Now Brantley is facing dialysis as his kidneys started showing signs of inflammation. Several people have donated directly to his mother through CashApp, and several businesses are hosting fundraisers.

Eastside Baptist Church in Marlow will be hosting a fundraiser “Pancake Breakfast Love Offering for Brantley” which starts at 9 a.m. Sunday at the church.

Bray-Doyle Store has a benefit meal day set for 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 4, with 100 percent of the proceeds to be donated to the family. The pancake breakfast and hamburger/hot dog lunch can be ordered by calling (580) 658-5211, or you can dine in, or carry out.
