Fund raiser for young cancer patient

January 25, 2012

Buckshots hosts a fund raiser for Ryan Kennedy, Saturday, Jan. 28.

Kennedy, a fourth grade student at North Sashabaw Elementary, is battling brain cancer.

He was diagnosed with a tumor in 2007. An emergency surgery in March 2007 removed a golf ball size tumor from his brain stem.

Since that time, he has had many surgeries and treatments. His family is seeking treatment in Chicago that began Dec. 14, 2011.

To help the family with medical costs and for travel to and from Chicago, Buckshots, 7048 Gateway Park Drive, is hosting the band "The Locals," 9:30 p.m. There will also be prizes and items auctioned off.

Donations can be made at Chase Bank to the Ryan Kennedy Fund.
