A Butler County boy who is battling a serious disease has made a generous donation.

At birth, Austin Rath was diagnosed with an illness known as Short Gut Syndrome and doctors had to remove 90 percent of his intestines.

Austin can’t absorb most foods and drinks, so he’s hooked up to IV nutrition most of the day. He can’t have any sugar at all, and that means no juice, fruit and certainly no cupcakes.

Tired of not being able to have those snacks, Austin and his mom have created Austin’s Cupcake Fund to raise money for medical research and treatment.
