Lisa Kopfer, Morganville, was recently diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme, also known as GBM. She had surgery May 10th at KU Med where the surgeon was able to remove a portion of the tumor. Since surgery, Lisa has had multiple appointments with various doctors to determine a treatment plan. On June 13th, she began radiation in Salina. The treatment plan requires radiation 5 days a week for 6 weeks. In addition to radiation, Lisa also must take a chemo pill daily. While this diagnosis and treatment has been terrifying enough, Lisa also did not have health insurance. In addition, she has not been able to work since she got sick. While Lisa and her family are currently trying to find a solution to resolve the lack of health insurance, any financial help would be appreciated to help with the costs of transportation to and from Salina, food, etc.

A fundraiser is being held at the United Methodist Church Family Life on Wednesday, June 29, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. A sloppy joe meal provided by Ray’s Apple Market consisting of sloppy joes, cheesy potatoes from Vathauer Catering, and green beans, along with a variety of desserts and salads will be served for a free will offering. There will also be an auction that night beginning at 6:00 pm. I am waiting to hear back from Jim Vathauer before I will know if it is going to be a live auction or a silent auction. Anyone who has an item to donate to the auction could call or text Linda Underwood at 785-632-0369 or send me a message on Facebook. Thanks to Pam Everett, Lisa Stonehouse, Deb Wallace, & an anonymous donor for providing the hamburger needed for the sloppy joes. Thanks to an anonymous donor for providing the bottled water needed for the meal. Thanks to Scott & Mary Taddiken for helping sponsor the meal and to Thrivent Financial for graciously providing $250 in supplemental funds.

Anyone wanting to donate to help Lisa and her family with medical or travel expenses could send it to:  Lisa Kopfer, %GN Bank, P. O. Box 260, Clay Center, Ks 67432-0260 or drop it by the bank at 624 W. Crawford St., Clay Center, Ks. Anyone wanting to donate a gas card to help this family could bring it to the meal or mail it to Lisa Kopfer, 204 W. Elizabeth St., Morganville, Ks 67468.
