Fundraiser dinner scheduled for teen battling osteosarcoma
Monday, March 3, 2014 — Just four days after graduating high school, a local teen was diagnosed with bone cancer and, since then, he has been receiving treatment at Lucile Packard in the Bay Area.
Kiefer Crosby, 18, chose to have his leg amputated and is currently receiving a strong form of chemotherapy as the cancer has metastasized to his lung.
To help the family with the financial costs, a pasta feed fundraiser will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 4 at Diamond Mountain Casino and Hotel. If you would like to donate, call Davon Joseph at 310-2464 or Crosby’s mother, Camille Coombs-Young, at 250-3180.
If people can’t attend, but want to contribute, they can donate at an account set up at the Golden One Credit Union.
