Lower Niagara Moose Lodge 584 invites the community to join in the lodge's upcoming relief event to assist bar staffer Margaret Blevins Haseley, who is now battling cancer.
Recently, Maggie learned during a brief stay in the hospital that she was in the beginning stages of invasive ductal carcinoma (breast cancer). Prognosis after surgery to remove her tumor was good, but short lived. Just one week after surgery, her follow-up testing revealed cancer had spread to her lymphoid (stage two).
She faces more surgery, chemo, radiation, appointments and loss of work in attempts to eliminate her cancer.
The community is invited to attend a benefit at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, to assist Maggie. The event will include food, draft beer, pop, entertainment and a flat-screen TV door-prize giveaway. The lodge also will offer a basket raffle and other activities.
Tickets are on sale for $20.
Donations for the benefit are now being accepted. Contact Ashley Olds at 716-804-2423 or the lodge at 716-754-9061 for more information.
Also, visit Facebook at Cancer Benefit for Margaret (Maggie) Blevins Haseley for further details.
