A benefit for Linda Fenton will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20 at Broadway Pizza, 16754 Hwy. 10, Elk River.
She had been laid off from her job and was recently placed at a position with a temp service, for which she was glad because the bills were piling up. Linda is single with two daughters and a grandchild at home, and they all struggled with employment and going to school this year. She is 62, very active at Union Church in Elk River, participates in the Race for the Cure and the Relay for Life.
Twelve years ago, Linda had breast cancer and did the surgery and chemotherapy. Now, 12 years later, the cancer is back. She is taking 52 weeks of intense chemotherapy and looks forward to a fulfilling life.
Tickets for the event are $14, or $16 at the door. Donations for the silent auction also would be appreciated.
