Abaconians support Dee Dee Russell Medical Fundraiser

A Dee Dee Roberts Medical Fundraiser was held on Sept. 28 at BAIC Park. Dee Dee was diagnosed with a prolapsed uterus, so doctors had to perform reconstructive surgery on her in July.

Not only was Dee Dee left in a lot of pain, but because she has no medical insurance, there was also an exorbitant amount of bills to repay.

Her daughter, Erica Roberts Albury, was thankful for the support Dee Dee received during this time. Family and friends bonded together to help cook food and volunteer their time.

There were tasty rib and chicken dinners on sale served with ice cold drinks; a bouncing castle, face painting and hoopla game for the children; and discounted books and assorted items were on sale. Live entertainment and a raffle was also provided.
