A fundraiser for Lisa Owens is being held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at Chick-fil-A in Palestine.
She is currently receiving daily chemotherapy at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Due to the pandemic, her compromised immune system and the need to get to the hospital quickly for treatment, Owens has had to move into an apartment near the hospital. She will need to live in the apartment near the hospital through April.
This fundraiser is being done through the restaurant's drive-thru only. You must specify that your order is in support of the Lisa Owens’ fundraiser for the fundraiser to get credit.
Owens, a native of Anderson County, was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia after experiencing low blood levels, bouts with constant pain and fatigue.
The cost of treatment, travel and the apartment have been a major drain on the Owens’ family finances, especially after losing her monthly salary.
Prior to her diagnosis, Owens was a dental hygienist. She and her husband, Brian, have three children.
Friends and family ask for the community to cover the Owens’ family in prayer and consider helping them during their time of need.
“Lisa and her family covet your prayers and are more than thankful for the outpouring of prayers, love and support, they have received already,” said Phyllis Simpson, friend and event organizer.
A GoFund me account has also been set up for the Owens’ family at https://www.gofundme.com/f/lisaowens. You can also drop donations off with Gail or Brian at J&B Auto and Truck.
