To benefit a Prairiland ISD family facing several medical bills for their 20-month-old daughter who is battling B-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia, two T-shirt fundraisers are underway, and Gatlin’s All Paws vet clinic in Reno is taking in donations.
Carsen Raley, 20-month-old granddaughter of Prairiland ISD’s Athletic Director Steven Weddle was recently diagnosed with leukemia, immediately began treatment and is expected to undergo many more.
“While no time is ever a good time to hear your child has cancer, it is especially hard with the holidays right around the corner,” Gatlin’s All Paws shared. “Gatlin’s All Paws and Posh Paws are currently accepting donations for the Raley family for the times ahead to help accommodate with travel, hotel, medical, food costs.”
Cash or checks can be dropped off at Gatlin’s All Paws, 6485 Lamar Rd. in Reno. Donations can also be made through Venmo to @Jalyn-Raley.
“Most importantly, we ask that you keep raising this baby and her entire family in your thoughts and prayers,” Gatlin’s continued. “We are currently working on other forms of fundraisers to continue benefitting the family, which can include but are not limited to a silent/live auction, ticket raffle and BBQ supper.”
T-shirts are also being sold to help support Carsen and her family, and proceeds from the sales will go to her parents, Cutter and Jalyn to help with the medical expenses.
Print Works, 6955 Lamar Road in Reno, offers three shirt styles – DryBlend Poly T-shirt, Jersey Short Sleeve Tee and a Long Sleeve Tee – all for $20 each, before taxes. Print Works’ tee’s have “She is little, she is fierce, #CARSENCAN” on the front-left chest and a graphic saying “Leukemia Messed with the wrong FAMILY” on the back.
