Christine Benedyk is a 20-year-old who’s been battling Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia for three years. It is a rare blood cell cancer that originates in the bone marrow. Chrissy will require oral chemotherapy for the rest of her life. Can you imagine that? It’s a difficult thing to live and deal with. As you can imagine, it can take its toll. Chrissy suffers from seizures, panic attacks, depression and other ailments. While it takes a physical and emotional toll, it is also taking a financial toll on the family.

That’s why family and friends have set up a benefit to help with mounting medical expenses. They’d love your support!

WHERE:  Dom Polski Club, 576 Oliver Street, North Tonawanda
