Benefit to be held for the Frost family

Friends of the Frost family will be hosting a fundraiser to help defray the cost of medical expenses for the family.

Recently, Sydney and Jack Frost Jr. were diagnosed with Fanconi Syndrome. This is an extremely rare disease which affects the kidneys and causes many serious complications. It affects one in 500,000 people, and only 10 to 20 people in the United States inherit the disease per year. The Frost children will be in Roswell for a period of two to three months while receiving treatment. This will be a great strain on the Frosts, both emotionally and financially. The cost of gasoline, tolls, meals and lost time at work will be excessive.

Therefore, the Forestville S.W.A.T. softball team will be hosting a game against the Forestville Babe Ruth Boys on Sunday at 4 p.m. to raise money for the Frosts. There will be food and drinks available for purchase, a Chinese auction, a 50/50 raffle and a quilt to raffle off. To close the evening, there will be a charity home run hitting competition for children and adults. The public is invited to come enjoy the fun and support this worthy cause at the Forestville Elementary School at 12 Water St.

The organizers of this event are asking for donations from the community to be used for the Chinese auction, home run hitting competition and the concession stand. They will also accept monetary donations for the family.

Anyone wishing to make a donation can contact Mike Nasal at 998-9720, Mark Ostrye at 401-9111 or Marci Waterman at 785-4221. Any donations will be much appreciated as the Frost family undergoes this ordeal.
