Hope for Harlow Born blind, epileptic, and with cerebral palsy, 11-month-old Harlow Crisamore needs special medical equipment not paid for by her parents' health insurance.  Her father James Crisamore, a 28-year-old injured Iraq war veteran, was hanging fundraising flyers for his daughter's medical needs when he met Skip Cappawana, the co-owner of Laughs Unlimited.  A veteran himself, Cappawana has decided to help Crisamore by holding a comic relief fundraiser at Laughs Unlimited this Sunday.  All the proceeds will go to medical treatment for Harlow and establishing a nonprofit for children with similar conditions.
