Big Boy hosts benefit for Bree Town Jan. 30

GREENVILLE, Mich.-- Community members are encouraged to show their support for a 10-year-old girl battling acute myeloid leukemia by grabbing a meal at the local Big Boy Thursday night.

From 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., Big Boy will donate 15 percent of food purchases to Bree Town and her family. However, patrons must print and present the flyer below for their bill to count.   The benefit is sponsored by Calvary Baptist Church.

Last month, Baldwin Heights Elementary Principal Mike Walsh said doctors found a 100 percent bone marrow match for Bree, giving her the best possible chance at beating leukemia.   Walsh said Bree still had another round of chemotherapy, but doctors may be able to do a bone marrow transplant as early as January.

Bree has had more than 75 blood transfusions since she was diagnosed May 1, 2012. Bree needs a bone marrow transplant to survive, on top of additional blood transfusions.  WZZM 13 profiled Bree and her fight to live last month.  You can find the story here.
