OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (WATE) – A community is invited to come together tonight to support a young boy battling an incurable disease.

10-year-old Jakob Holman is battling dysautonomia, a nervous system disease.

Join family and friends tonight at the dysautonomia awareness dinner for Jakob at Freddy’s along South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.

It’s going on from 5 until 9 p.m.

Freddy’s will be donating 15 percent of each purchase to help Jakob’s family with medical costs.

If you can’t make it to the dinner but still want to show your support, consider contributing to their GoFundMe to help offset Jakob’s medical costs.
