The Community Comes Together to Help Indigo Mullin
He's was on the mend and a bit camera-shy at a benefit in his honor, but Indigo Mullin has come a long way since he was attacked by a dog at the Watertown Farmers Market on August 31st. It was an attack that resulted in 105 stitches and reconstructive surgery.
"They are talking about doing another revision surgery on his cheek, but that will be a couple years down the road," says Indigo's mother Jennifer Duger.
On Saturday, friends and family gathered at Bistro 108 in Watertown to raise money to help cover expenses that came along with Indigo's treatment. "The medical bills themselves are well over $30,000 this point and we didn't have coverage at the time, so we are working on that. There's been a lot of different expenses and stuff that you don't expect," adds Duger.
Duger says during the long road to recovery, the support from the community has made a world of difference.
"The love and the support, it's been wonderful for the family. I think it's given us the strength that we need to get through a tough time," says Duger.
