Frenchtown Fundraiser For Sammi Ward
It was close to 6 years ago when Sammi Ward had a brain tumor biopsied from her brainstem. The tumor was non-cancerous and slow growing Pilocytic Astrocytoma.
Unfortunately, during a recent MRI, the tumor has been growing slowly, it is now growing into the brainstem. Chemotherapy won't help because there is no drug available that is effective for brainstem tumors. Radiation isn't an option either, again due to the placement of the tumor.
The only option left is brain surgery. Sammi's survival rate is lessened due to this being a second surgery and being inside of the brainstem and not just attached.
So the fundraiser will be Saturday, April 1st at Benny's Frenchtown Club from 5-9pm. There will be pulled pork and coleslaw catered by Charlie B's. And there will be a custom made AR-15 up for auction from Zootown Knives and Weaponry.
