Fundraiser to help woman battling cancer
Monday, Aug. 24, 2015 — A taco dinner fundraiser will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3 at the Diamond Willow Room at Diamond Mountain Casino to benefit a local woman battling cancer.
In July Amy Vaughan found out she is suffering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Her insurance will not cover all the medical costs needed for her recovery. Also, due to her treatment regimen, she will not be allowed to return to work for months to come. According to a flyer about the event, the fundraiser will help relieve some of the financial stress.
A family friend said Vaughan suffers from stage 3 cancer, faces six month of chemotherapy followed by radiation and stem-cell transplants.
