Benefit BBQ for Bone Marrow Transplant Recipient

Great news for Wayne Riddles. He's been fighting Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for 6 years, and now, the bone marrow registry says they've found a match.

This means now Wayne can get the bone marrow transplant he needs to save his life. The problem is his lengthy fight with cancer has maxxed out his insurance benefit. So FedEx Freight, Wayne's employer, has set up a benefit of their own to help Wayne raise the money he needs for that transplant. FedEx is hosting a fund raising Bar-B-Q on Tuesday starting at 11am at the Lubbock FedEx terminal at 4201 MLK Blvd.

You can also make donations to the Wayne Riddles Medical Fund at any American State Bank.
