Brad and Christi Dahl have been fighting for their unborn daughter's life ever since they found out little Poppy has a rare heart defect.
Many in the Gallatin Valley, when they heard about the couple's challenge, stepped forward to help.
A pancake breakfast was held Saturday morning at Evangelical Free Church in Bozeman for the couple, who are scheduled to leave for Seattle in a few days.
The Brad and Christi say that although Poppy is due in March, they have to spend February at their hospital in Seattle in case she comes early, as doctors have to operate as soon as she (Poppy) is born.
That said, neither will be able to work while there, and therefore need community support. The Dahls say that friends and strangers have gone above and beyond to fill any possible need.
"People have just come out of the woodwork, there's been such an amazing turnout today, its...awesome." says Brad, "We don't know how to thank people enough."
Another fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday February 9th. Daniel Wendell, former executive chef at the Yellowstone Club, hosting a $150 per plate dinner for the Dahls, and tickets are going fast. If you would like to reserve a spot, call (406) 580-5620.
