The Phriends of “Amo Bennett” FUNDRAISER

Most of you know James “Amo” Bennett, a fellow Parrot Head Phriend with the North Coast Parrot Head Club, and Island Time Radio show co-host, but you might not know the struggles he is going through. His son James Jr. who is now 13 years old, has leukemia and has been treated for over 5 months for the cancer and is waiting for a Bone Marrow Transplant. James Jr. has been in & out of Akron’s Children’s Hospital for 5 months now.

Amo has been driving to the hospital after work continuously to spend the night with his son during his treatments. Let us just consider the gas and parking costs Amo endures to stay at the hospital and keep close to his son during this traumatic time.

We can only imagine the struggles a parent goes through when their child is diagnosed with Leukemia, the mental anguish is hard enough, but when you add the financial burden of the hospital bills and the ongoing travel costs for gas, parking, non-covered medical expenses, the situation is mind numbing.

The fund-raiser will be at:

Slim-and-Chubby,

12792 Prospect Rd.

Strongsville, Ohio 44149

from 5-8pm on October 8th, 2011.
