Community love for a 4-year-old cancer patient

An entertaining and easy way to do a good deed is coming Lancaster County way this Saturday, Jan. 10, at Bube’s Brewery in Mount Joy. It’s also cheap, thanks to a $5 cover charge that will go directly to the cause at hand.

Beginning at 9 p.m., a benefit concert will begin in the Bottling Works at Bube’s to support Hannah Garman. At least nine local bands will be performing.

Hannah is a four-year-old native of Lancaster County who was diagnosed in October with a rare and aggressive cancerous brain tumor. The little lady has been through a few operations to remove the tumor, as well as some treatments in an attempt to cure her of the disease. The doctors have given Hannah 2-3 months to live without treatment. To boot, Hannah’s mother passed away several years ago from cancer, leaving father Darin to care for Hannah and her two older siblings.

All of the funds raised at the benefit concert will go to helping Hannah’s family with their tough situation. So come on out, have a couple of drinks and participate in the raffle. Anyone who wants to help out with the event (including making a donation for the raffle) can contact Todd Johnston at (717) 468-8807 or by sending an e-mail to todd@ksoundstudios.com.

More information on Hannah’s situation can be found by watching this video or this slideshow.
