Thursday, Dairy Queen of Cochran was once again part of Miracle Treat Day. It's an annual fundraiser for Children's Miracle Network where restaurants will donate $1 from every Blizzard and ten percent of all sales. Proceeds from Cochran will go to the Children's Hospital in Macon.
One person who helped make a few of the Blizzards that night knew first hand just how important Children's Miracle Network is. That was nine-year old Grason Anderson.
Grason, the son of Michael and Noel Anderson of Cochran, has an immune deficency. He is a "miracle child" meaning he benefits from the services of CMN.
For the past eight years, he's received treatments every 21 days. Noel credits the treatments for Grason being able to enjoy a regular life. She said Grason coded twice while up there. "They saved his life."
