A benefit to help defray medical costs and other expenses for Lissie Wyatt will be held this Sunday, December 13, at Mike’s Dance Barn, located on SR 46 between Bloomington and Nashville.
Wyatt, who has worked as a teacher’s assistant for SCCAP Head Start for the past five years, has been struck by a debilitating and life-threatening disease, Wegners necrotizing glomular pherisis. This rare type of auto-immune disorder causes the body’s immune system to attack the kidneys as if they were a disease entering the body.
As a result, Wyatt has had long hospital stays in Bloomington and Indianapolis, and has an even longer convalescence ahead, including dialysis three times a week, chemotherapy and blood filtering to remove white blood cells that are attacking her kidneys.
To raise funds to help Lissie and her family, a bake sale and yard sale will be held Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Mike’s Dance Barn, followed at 5 p.m. by an evening of music, food and fun.
To make donations of donations of money or items to be sold at the bake sale or yard sale, contact Beth Harris at 812-720-2768.
