To the Editor:
On Sunday, May 6, there will be a benefit for Lola Helmers at the Dunnell Community Hall from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Sherburn Lions Club is sponsoring a pancake breakfast and the Black Knights Car Club is sponsoring a car show.
Lola is undergoing her second battle with cancer. In the past months, she has spent numerous days in Rochester and Fairmont hospitals due to complications of her recent diagnosis.
She has been actively involved in the Martin County Relay for Life as Survivor Tri-Chair since her first diagnosis in 2005. Despite all of her recent setbacks, she has remained optimistic and focused on helping others in their fights with cancer.
The benefit is being held to help defray medical costs. If you'd like to help but cannot make the event, donations can be sent to Farmers State Bank in Dunnell under Lola Helmers Benefit.
