Benefit Carnival for Team Anderson County

Sat, 05/25/2013 - 11:00am - 3:00pm

You're invited to the Team AC (Anderson County) Benefit Carnival.

Saturday May 25th at Norris Elementary from 10am to 2pm.

Sometimes things happen that quickly remind us of what is really important in life.

Avery Baker is a 5 year old girl who is in the fight of her life. She was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and has begun a grueling 27 month chemo treatment plan. If that wasn’t enough, her father, Charles, is battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Cancer is a terrible disease that can impact anyone at any time, even children like Avery. It is a scary situation for any person, but it becomes personal for any parent when you see it impact an innocent child at the beginning of her life. That's where we are, the fight against cancer is personal.

We cannot look at it as a rare condition impacting someone else's child and forget about it tomorrow or next week, because it could just as easily be mine or yours.

Join TEAM AC for a Carnival Benefit for Charles and Avery Baker as our community supports this family.

This event is in partnership with Mayor Terry Frank and Norris Elementary.
