A benefit for Mark Westerman will be held Saturday, May 12 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Word of Peace Lutheran Church, 21705 129th Ave. N., Rogers.
Three years ago, Mark was diagnosed with a grade 3 astrocytoma brain tumor/cancer and has been fighting recurring brain tumors over the last 3.5 years. Since then he has endured brain surgeries, radiation and numerous rounds of intense chemotherapy. These treatments have left Mark disabled. Medical and home care expenses have been drastically increasing, as home care and many other expenses are not covered by insurance.
Come and enjoy an Italian dinner, silent auction, raffle, kids games and a bake sale. Music and dancing will be provided by Soled Out. Cost is $10 per person, $25 per family.
Please make out and mail crisis donations to: Veronica Westerman, 14708 71st St., Otsego, Minn. 55330.
