Fundraiser held for sick veteran in Stratford

Posted: Updated:
STRATFORD -

The Stratford community is rallying around a Seymour veteran who put his own life on the line to serve the nation.

Executive Care, a home health care service, organized a fundraiser for Jimmy Mihalovic.

He was recovering from surgery when he had a stroke, and is paying mostly out of pocket for his medical care and rehab.

Executive Home Care rallied local businesses to donate gift cards, which were then raffled off. 

The proceeds were presented to Mihalovic's family Monday night.
