YORK, Neb. — Several months ago York residents donated more than $2,100 to the Heart Heroes program that provides “superhero” capes for children being treated for congenital heart defects.
Donors were prompted by the efforts of Dale and Tandi Rasmussen of York, parents of 6-year-old Dylan. He received one of the capes as he faces his own medical challenges and ongoing heart surgeries.
