Sarah Shurb Benefit

There will be a fundraiser with a meal and silent auction for Sarah Shurb on Thursday, February 6th, 2014 from 4:30-7:30pm at LqPV High School. .  Sarah became very ill the first part of December and was in a local hospital for three days and then she was airlifted to the St. Cloud Hospital.  Sarah has been in the St. Cloud Hospital (which is two hours from her home) for a month.  Recently she was moved to a rehabilitation center (which is 2 ½ hours from her home) near St. Cloud, for rehab.  She has been diagnosed with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome which is a rapidly developing, life-threatening condition in which the lung is injured to the point where it can’t properly do its job of moving air in and out of the blood.  The fundraiser and silent auction will be held in conjunction with a high school girls basketball game (Sarah’s husband, John, is a coach and teaches @ Dawson-Boyd High School and Lac qui Parle Valley High School).
