Fundraiser scheduled for Saline County teen

October 15, 2014

A 17-year-old Saline County girl is fighting a tough battle: She has Hodgkin's lymphoma and is undergoing treatment at St. jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.

Area residents wanting to help Danielle Lachney and her family as they undergo this experience have scheduled a fundraiser Nov. 15 at the Saline County Moose Lodge 2567 in Benton.

The event will raise funds to help Danielle's family with expenses not covered by her insurance and her long journey through recovery, Moose Lodge spokesperson Angie Norman said.
