Fundraiser to benefit cancer victim

On April 16, there will be a fundraising dinner for Ann Layell from noon to 8 p.m. at Central Baptist Church in Kannapolis.
Layell has had her own business for 27 years, taking down and installing wallpaper both commercially and in individual homes.
On June 23, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. A tumor the size of a grapefruit was found on her ovary, along with cancer cells in her lower bowel area. The tumor was removed.
Two weeks after the surgery, Layell developed a hematoma about the same size as her tumor and had a blockage in her lower bowel. She went through a second surgery.
In September, she started aggressive chemotherapy which lasted until the second week of January. She is continuing to take another experimental drug for the upcoming year that will hopefully stop new cancer cells from forming.
Layell has finally had to stop her business. Her only finances consist of Social Security Disability. She is faced with extensive medical bills and the possibility of selling or losing her home.
Organizers hope is that Layell’s friends, family, business partners and customers come together for the fundraiser.
The dinner will consist of chicken and dumplings, slaw, bread, cake and tea. All donations should be made out to Central Baptist Church. Contact Beverly Butts at 704-642-0497 for further information.
