Help A Good Person Fight a Bad Thing

In October, Nevada County resident Bethany Williams was honored with the Outstanding Individual in the Community Award from the Nevada County Health and Human Services Department for her work with pregnant teens and young mothers at Park Avenue School in Grass Valley. However, Bethany never got to celebrate because she was focused on her four year old daughter, Olivia, who was undergoing some serious medical tests.

Four year old, Olivia was diagnosed with cancer and within a week began treatment.

Olivia has been a champion as she goes through treatment, but it is hard on a child that is usually very active.

Dealing with a child with cancer can be overwhelming, and especially if it impacts the family financially. The Williams’ insurance will cover much of the medical costs, but a $5500 dollar deductible needs to be paid now, and unfortunately again in January as well as travel expenses back and forth to Sacramento for weekly treatments.

Friends of Olivia and her parents are holding a benefit this Saturday at 6:00 PM at the Winchester Country Club in Meadow Vista.
Bethany says the 10 dollar donation and money raised through additional activities will help defray mounting bills.

If all goes well, Olivia could be done with chemotherapy in two more months.
Olivia’s benefit event is Saturday at 6:00 PM at the Winchester Country Club in Meadow Vista.

If you cannot attend and would like to donate, donations can be made at any Wells Fargo branch into Savings Account #3038873273. In the check memo please note “Olivia Donation”.

Olivia’s blog address is www.caringbridge.org/visit/oli.
