A fish-fry benefit for Madi Robertson will be held at the Elks Lodge in Paris on Nov. 13.
Robertson had an unexpected seizure while at work on Sept. 28 at First National Bank of Cooper, and she was transported to Sulphur Springs where a large mass was discovered and needed to be extracted immediately. She was then sent to Christ’s St. Francis in Tyler, where as much of the Oligodendroglioma Grade 2 tumor was removed as possible.
“Anyone who knows Madi can tell you just how sweet, giving and one of a kinds she truly is. When Madi walks in a room she brings a spark of joy, happiness, love and of course her glowing smile that could cure anyone’s bad day.”
From 12-6 p.m., the benefit for Robertson is a $10/plate fish fry where there will be a live and silent auction. Stacy Musgrove and the Stoney Creek Band will provide live music.
Robertson is now back in Sulphur Springs, undergoing rigorous therapy to relearn how to eat, drink and regain her speech, and she has suffered paralysis on her left side.
“Madi has a long road ahead with treatment, in regard to not only therapy but chemo and radiation. At this point, Madi has no form of insurance, government assistance or the means to pay for these medical treatments.”
For more information on the upcoming benefit, contact Craig Burns at 903-249-2467, David Poole at 903-517-7640 or Lisa Duerksen at 903-272-0397. Donations for the live and silent auction can be dropped off at North Texas Fab, 5690 Lamar Road in Reno.
