COMMUNITY RALLIES TOGETHER – PLEASE ATTEND TONIGHT'S EVENT AT POTTER'S PLACE OR MAKE A DONATION IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THE EVENT

Brienne is receiving treatment at Edward Hospital in Naperville and simultaneously pursuing a course of treatment that offers hope of health and well-being, but is beyond the financial capabilities of her family.
