SILOAM SPRINGS, AR -- One family is working to overcome tragedy by making a positive difference in the lives of others.

19-year-old Dustin Chamberlain was shot and killed on December 14, 2011. He was home for Christmas from Baylor University, where he was studying to become a doctor.

Two years after his death, friends and family gathered in Siloam Springs to host Dustin's 2nd Heavenly Birthday. There was a chili supper and pie auction to help raise money to achieve Dustin's Dream of building a medical clinic in Guatemala City.

"We're trying to turn and involve other people and reach out and that has been a blessing to us to be able to help others, and to see something good come out of something that was so tragic," said Don Chamberlain.

More than $9,300 were raised at the event which will help complete the clinic, and a donation was made to send the entire Chamberlain family to Guatemala.
