Sunday, March 12, 2023– Dear Friends and family, if you don’t already know this amazing woman, her name is Sheila Morris of Lake Milton, OH. She graduated from Southeast High school in 1985. Recently, she was diagnosed with Renel Cell Carcinoma, this is a cancer that affects the kidneys, and Sheila will be having one removed on February 23rd; the other is slightly affected but will hopefully be okay. Sheila worked hard for many years until she fell ill, then cancer suddenly took over her life. She owned a trucking business, and after that, you may have run into her working at El Carlos or the Depot in Lake Milton. She raised three children and is now also a proud and loving Grandmother of six. We are all praying for a speedy and complete recovery for her, but the medical bills are stacking up quickly, and we can give her the opportunity to worry more about her health, and not how much it costs; so that’s why on March 12th, 2023, there will be a fundraiser to help her and her family with the cost of fighting cancer, at the American Legion in Lake Milton, from 1-7 pm. There will be live entertainment all day, basket raffles, a 50/50 drawing, and a pasta dinner with a customary $10 donation at the door. This is a cash-only event. Cancer is frightening and can happen to anyone at any time, so please come show your love and support!
