ELKHART — A recent fundraiser for a cancer patient helped a family overcome some financial hardships.

According to the family of Kelly Crimaldi, nearly 550 people attended a fundraiser at Christiana Creek Country Club.

Crimaldi is recovering from surgery and other post-operative treatments after being diagnosed with a brain tumor last fall.

The family expressed appreciation for the support and issued the following statement: “Due to the generosity of so many, enough monies were raised that night that our financial burden is no longer a burden. We can move forward with Kelly’s future medical care, knowing the last five months of costs are behind us. We are so very blessed.”
