5. Help Evan Berry get a bone marrow transplant
Evan Berry is one of 8,000 people in North America — one of about 240 people younger than the age of 18 — with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, or PNH, a rare disease that causes his red blood cells to break down. The problem stems from his bone marrow and can be life-threatening. A bone marrow transplant is the only known cure.
McPherson High School will host a fundraiser Saturday to raise money to pay for Evan’s treatment. The fundraiser begins at 5 p.m. and will include a potato bar, a silent auction, bingo, and musical entertainment.
