Zelda Gavins needs your help.
This Cheyenne woman learned in January that she has lung cancer, and she undergoes five-hour chemotherapy treatments monthly. Of course, the treatment costs are high, so she can use the financial help. But lest you think Zelda is thinking about only herself through this ordeal, there’s something else you need to know.
Zelda’s daughter Lakisha got a scholarship to go to a nursing school in Michigan. Lakisha’s mom is sick, but Zelda insisted that Lakisha go to school. To make that happen, Zelda is going to raise her 7-year-old grandson for the next three years so her daughter can focus on her education.
Many of you might recognize or know Zelda. She works in the barber shop at the Trails End Club on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, and she used to work at the barber shop near the BX. Her infectious smile and positive attitude have brought joy to customers for years on the base.
A special lunch, silent auction and raffle will be held from noon to 3 p.m. this Saturday at the Moose Lodge, 1019 S. Greeley Highway. For more information, click on “To give your money” at right.
Let’s come together and help Zelda battle her cancer and make sure her daughter can get a good education!
