(Jan. 29) -- After hearing the story of a couple who can't afford medication for their 4-year-old son who has cystic fibrosis on a local TV newscast, an anonymous donor gave the family $2,300.

Leslie and Patrick Contreras of Tucson, Ariz., had been able to keep up with the cost of their son Natha's prescription medication until they hit a glitch with their health insurance, so they turned to Facebook to appeal for emergency donations. That is when TV station KVOA picked up on the story early this week.
