Raising Funds for Stayner Baby

Stayner | by Keith Holland  

There is a scrap metal fundraiser this weekend to help Stayner baby fight cancer.

There will be a scrap metal fundraiser today to raise funds for a baby girl from Stayner.

Eight month old Jennson Douglas was recently diagnosed with cancer and has already had a procedure to remove one of her kidneys along with a tumour.

Event Organizer Alyssa Nesbitt says the tumour is a form of cancer which mostly affects young children.

She notes the tumour that was removed was very large for a child her size.

The scrap metal drive will take place from 10 AM to 4 PM today and again tomorrow (SUN) from 11 AM to 4 PM at the Co-op parking lot.

Nesbitt says they will accept any form of scrap they can get their hands on and would also accept cash donations.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will be going directly to the family.
