Batavia family thanks those
who helped disabled twins

Kerri Branson spent Sunday delivering prizes to friends and even strangers who showed her family so much generosity a day before.
She was handing out items to raffle winners who came to Saturday's Branson Project fund-raiser, a benefit in Batavia that raised $35,000 for her 5-year-old twin boys, Zach and Luke, who need continual treatment because of cerebral palsy.
The twins were diagnosed with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy when they were 9 months old, a result of premature birth. Both boys must use wheelchairs and have limited movement.
Beyond that, the boys have been plagued with severe reflux that causes them to vomit three to four times a day. That alone left them homebound and in fear of developing esophageal cancer.
