Glen Terry Heart Benefit 7-31-10

This benefit is for a good friend of my family. Glen is like a big brother to me and I want to make this a success! If you can help or know of anyone who can help/donate please contact me or the Admin Nancy at the bottom!

Where: Moose Lodge, 25 Springfield Ave, Joliet, Il
When: July 31st 2-6 p.m.


On June 10, Glen, after much 'nagging' from a friend, went in to the quick care clinic to be treated for a persistent cough that he had for approximately seven months. Despite his expectations that he would be given an antibiotic and some cough syrup, he instead was swiftly rushed to the ER and admitted to the ICU at St. Joe's for Congestive Heart Failure. His blood pressure was extremely elevated and his heart was enlarged. After 4 days in the ICU, no prior family history of heart disease and with his head spinning, he was sent home stabilized, but not without being informed he had 3-90% blockages to his heart and required a triple bypass.

Glen is 39 years old, a nonsmoker, rare drinker, with virtually no prior medical history. This news was completely blind-siding and devastating. The issue that loomed and is still looming is that just three short months prior to this he was hired for an externship in Medical Coding and subsequently hired less than 90 days ago with the company he completed the externship with. The result? No current medical insurance. While we understand there are many out there who suffer from a variety of issues, those who are close to him wanted to do something for a friend that has helped them through hard times, tough times, and has been an absolutely unrelenting, giving and caring friend....hence this benefit. The purpose for this benefit is to raise enough money to offset some of the extensive medical bills Glen is facing.

Please come out and support Glen and a former Plainfield Alum. $25 a ticket or $40 for a couple. This includes draft beer, food and nonalcoholic beverages. $10 for kids 13-20 and kids under 12 are FREE!

There will be raffles, 50/50's and silent auctions! Moon walk and playground for the kids. Bring the family for an hour or the day, or get out as a couple or with friends!

Live Bands! Checkered Past (60's music) and RedDB (Rock) as well as other bands playing!

SHOW OFF YOUR CUSTOM CAR OR MOTORCYCLE!

Hope to see you there! ALL ARE WELCOME and you are free to forward this invite to anyone you wish.

For questions, call Nan (815) 573-6622 or Barb (815) 342-0733 or call if you'd like to make a donation of food, items, baskets or gift certificates. Please also call if you would like or are willing to help in any way! Or cash donations can be made to Chase Bank, Account #2954063745 or mail to Faith Slick at Chase Bank, IL1-2920, 2500 West Jefferson St., Joliet IL 60435. Be SURE to include account number on any checks being mailed in.
