Giving for Gigi Fund


What: "Giving For Gigi" Fund for Gianna Carrera, diagnosed with NF-1 (neurofibromatosis).
Where: Union Bank

Gianna "Gigi" Carrera, is a 2nd grader at Kloefkorn Elementary. She was diagnosed as an infant with NF-1  (neurofibromatosis), a genetic disorder which may cause tumor growth along the central nervous system.  It was found that she had 3 tumors on her brain, one of which was partially removed in February.  Complete removal of the remaining tumors followed by radiation and weekly chemotherapy will be needed.  Her family is coping amazingly and have asked for only prayers.  But the cost of transportation to appointments and time spent away from work is an added stress.  Friends and supporters have set up a "Giving for Gigi" fund at Union Bank.  Donations of cash or check and earmarked Carrera will be accepted at any Union Bank branch in town.
