On Bended Knee for Terrie Kissell will be held on March 3rd, 2013 at the Best Western in Galesburg from 12-4. This benefit will include appetizers, entertainment provided by Jera and the Absoluts, games, a 50/50 raffle and silent auction.
This benefit is to raise money to help Terrie Kissell with medical bills and living expenses. She was diagnosed in December with Stage 3b lung cancer (environmentally caused). Due to complications during surgery to remove the tumor she had her left lung removed. Terrie will be starting chemotherapy in a few weeks and will have quite a long journey ahead.
Before this diagnosis she was full of spunk and energy, almost as rambunctious as her 2 year old grandson. She is recovering pretty well although her voice hasn't fully come back. The doctors have said it may return.
Terrie is truly an angel on Earth, there isn't anything she wouldn't do to help someone, even a stranger. Her faith is carrying her through this and it hasn't wavered. Due to her kindness, she has gained a multitude of friends that want to help her by having this benefit.
