Local Community Fundraiser to Aid Girl’s Leukemia Treatment

The Olympian, WA, has a call for donations to help the family of a girl who is battling leukemia help pay a $7,000 medical insurance deductible and other hospital-related expenses. So far, the Tumwater Hill Elementary School’s PTA and Girl Scouts troop have raised more than $1,100 for Heather Schlindwein’s family. The fourth-grader was diagnosed with leukemia in December and is on her second round of chemotherapy at Children’s Hospital in Seattle.

Donations will be collected during Tumwater Hill Elementary School’s Family Fun Night from 7-8:30 p.m. today to help a South Sound girl who is battling leukemia. If you are in the area, please help spread the word.
