SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. -

Fairgoers in Robertson County will get a chance this week to help a White House infant who has been hospitalized since the day he was born.

Andrew Hagewood was born with an enlarged heart in February and received a heart transplant in March.

He recently left the Intensive Care Unit but was checked back in Friday because of respiratory problems.

"He is improving. His breathing is better. He will only be there for a few days," Andrew's grandmother, Linda Hagewood, told Nashville's News 2.

A booth set up at the Robertson County Fair will offer t-shirts, bracelets, buttons with Andrew's picture on them and information about becoming an organ donor.  

Donations will help the family cover mounting medical expenses.

"I think he's just touched everyone's heart. His story, his fight, we're now close to our seventh month and he is progressing so well," said Hagewood.

Supporters in the White House community have already sold thousands of t-shirts.

Family friends have also set up a Facebook page where updates about Andrew are posted.

The Robertson County Fair kicks off Monday night in Springfield and continues through Saturday, September 1.
