A Spaghetti Lunch is being held to benefit a local woman. The lunch is being held to benefit Nancy (Dunteman) Raifsnider of Shumway.
The lunch is being served on Sunday, December 11th at 11:00am at the Shumway Kluthe Center. A free will donation will be accepted for this meal. The menu will include spaghetti, salad, bread, drinks, and dessert. Raifsnider’s church family, friends, and classmates are also holding an ongoing gun raffle and a quilt raffle, which will be given away at the lunch. A 50/50 drawing and sales of “Miles to Mexico” will be held as well as the auction.
Daughter of Pat and the late Dale Dunteman, Nancy was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). MS is a disease that affects the brain, spinal cord, and other nerve connections. Nancy suffers from difficulty walking, difficulty with her balance, cognitive issues, chronic fatigue, and loss of eye sight. Recently, Nancy learned of hematopoietic stem cell therapy (HSCT). The objective for this treatment is to increase Nancy’s muscle tone and mobility, improve her motor function, and reduce her pain and dizziness. Nancy Raifsnider is scheduled to undergo the treatment in February 2017. However, the cost of the treatment, travel expenses, lodging, and meals in Puebla, Mexico are very expensive and are not covered by Raifsnider’s insurance. This Spaghetti Lunch will help with those expenses.
