(Neb.)-Fundraiser To Benefit Two Local Women

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 10/28/2013 12:47 PM

(Chadron)- A Chadron business is hosting an event for two employees who are facing mounting medical costs. “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 Roos, Jera Fitzgerald-Smith and their families. The benefit is being put on by Your Selling Team and its employees.
 
A chili feed and silent auction will be taking place, with all proceeds going to “Team Awesome”. The events will be on Sunday, November 17, from 11AM-2PM at St. Patrick's Catholic Church Assumption Arena in Chadron. Organizers will be accepting donations for “Team Awesome” wristbands at the event.
 
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.
 
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.
 
Those wanting more information on the benefit can contact Your Selling Team at 308-432-8700.
