Benefit for Teen Stroke Victim

A suppertime benefit will help out a young man who had a hemorrhagic stroke, as well as his area Lions Club programs.

The Chili and Grilled Cheese Supper is on Thursday, February 12.

Volunteers will be serving food from 4:30 in the afternoon until 7-at night.

It's at the Mondovi School Cafeteria.

It's $5 for adults to eat, kids ages 5-12 are $4, and pre-schoolers eat for free.

The event is a benefit for Tanner Franson. He's the 13-year-old boy from Mondovi who had a hemorrhagic stroke in December of 2008. Doctors say Tanner has an AVM, which is an abnormal tangle of blood vessels in the brain. Doctors say they only find an AVM in about one in 100,000 people.

Tanner is recovering, and plans to attend a half-day of school for the first time since his stroke on Wednesday, February 11.

If you can't make it to the benefit, and would like to donate, you can send donations to this address:
