Adelman benefit scheduled for Oct. 4

Friends will be hosting a benefit event for Shaina Adelman on Friday, Oct. 4, from 6 to 11 p.m. at O’Kelly’s, 3800 Main Ave., Fargo, to help support Shaina and her family in her fight against cancer. The evening will include a dinner, silent auction, and raffle items.

Shaina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer in July of this year, at the age of 32, after finding that her cancer had metastasized to her spine. Her original diagnosis was in March of 2011 at which time Shaina underwent chemotherapy, a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, and radiation.

Shaina is ready to do whatever it takes to fight this battle, so that she can be here to watch her beautiful daughters, ages 3 and 5, grow up. She is very active in FM Breast Friends Support Group and is always the first to help support other cancer survivors in any way she can.

Lend A Hand, a program of DMF, is providing up to $5,000 of matching funds; and Modern Woodmen of America is also providing up to $2,500 of matching funds.
