Fundraiser held to benefit local student’s family
Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015 — A taco dinner and raffle will be held to benefit the family of a Lassen High School sophomore who recently received a liver transplant.
The event will be held from 4 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7 at the Susanville Elks Lodge. All proceeds will benefit Tristan Steven’s family to help defray out-of-pocket medical and family expenses.
Stevens, 16, suffers from Urea Cycle Disorder; Arginine Deficiency, the rarest form of the disorder that affects the liver. His was one of only two cases in California and 25 worldwide when he was diagnosed at age 4. There is no cure.
