Benefit For Brittany

In my home town lives a young woman named Brittany Riley. Brittany is 20 yrs old. A recent MRI found a cancerous tumor on her sacrum bone, (the bottom of her spine). Having cancer is bad enough, I know from having it myself, but having a diagnosis at such an early age is heart breaking to me. It should be a time of fun and friends. But now she needs our support, love and prayers.

Along with this, financial support. Even if you can't attend the fundraiser, Please send a donation. It doesn't have to be much. Look at the amazing amount of money that was raised by donations of $10 for Haiti. Ask yourself what you could spend $10 on in the course of a day..... now think about that $10 going to help a young lady fighting cancer....which would make you feel better.

You will be helping with expense that you normally do not think about when someone is going through cancer treatments like gas going to and from appointments & tests, dental work, expenses for family to travel if need be, and the lists go on and on. Let's see what we can do for one of our own.

There is going to be a benefit to help her and her family as they go through this time The date and time are as follows:

Date: Saturday, May 15, 2010
Time: 2:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: Mountain View Campground

City/Town: Dixfield, ME

There will be camping allowed for the evening of May 15th at rates of Tent-for 4 people at $19.00 and Campers at $25.00.

There will be a Chinese auction, pig scramble, a Petting Zoo, raffles, face painting, a moon walk tent, food, music and dancing. It is a fun time for a very good cause.
