11/16/2013 - Chili Feed Benefit for Jera Fitzgerald and Amber Roos in Chadron
“Team Awesome” is an event to help cut the costs of medical bills, fuel for medical travel, and to help provide basic support for Amber, Jera and their families.
The benefit is being put on by Your Selling Team and its employees, because both Amber and Jera are important members of the Your Selling Team family. They will be hosting a Chili Feed and Silent Auction with all proceeds going to “Team Awesome”. The chili feed and silent auction will be on Sunday, November 17th from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM at St. Patrick's Catholic Church Assumption Arena, 355 Spruce Street. $5 for a bowl chilli and cornbread with silent auction to follow. We will be accepting donations for “Team Awesome” wristbands at the event.
Amber Roos is a single mother of 2 who after 10 years of remission was re-diagnosed with melanoma. She was transported via helicopter from Chadron Community Hospital to Regional West Medical Center where she underwent major brain surgeries to remove cancerous tumors. She has recently been released from the hospital, but will undergo further testing to make sure all the cancer has been removed. Amber and her daughters reside in Crawford. Her father Marty is a mechanic at Pine Ridge Service Station in Crawford.
Jera Fitzgerald-Smith is a 19 year old newlywed, who following major back surgery experienced pain and extreme numbness in her legs which confined her to a wheelchair. After unsuccessful appointments with specialists in Denver, she began receiving treatment from a doctor in Lexington who has helped restore her structural integrity and was able to get her walking again. Jera and her husband Adam, who is a salesman at Walhstrom Ford, reside here in Chadron.
