Sweetheart dance to benefit cancer patient
MILL HALL - The Mill Hall Area Lions are sponsoring a sweetheart dance to benefit cancer patient Mike "Bundy" Coleman from 8 to 11 p.m. Feb. 17 at the Lock Haven Elks Ballroom.
Coleman was diagnosed with a Stage IV malignant brain tumor in October 2011. He had surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible, but now relieves radiation and chemotherapy.
Coleman must travel to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, five days a week for radiation treatments. As Coleman is unable to work during this time, the benefit dance will offer much needed support for this young family.
A fee will be charged for the event.
