Concert benefit for Eccles family Saturday


Shelbyville Daily Union

---- — A benefit concert will be held Saturday to aid a Windsor couple.

In October 2012, Marty Eccles was diagnosed with heart failure due to complications of diabetes. He only had 25% of his heart working and was told that his kidneys were not working properly. He was taken off of work. In the midst of all this, his wife, Rhonda was diagnosed with breast cancer and was told she needed to start chemo as soon as possible which in a few weeks, she was unable to work. Marty has been told in the past three weeks that his kidneys are failing and he, most likely, would have to go on kidney dialysis. They have had little or no income since October of last year. He has filed for disability, but the government has taken its time on the case.The benefit concert will be held Saturday, July 13 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Oak Grove Baptist Church, 15989 N. Co. Road 2300 East, Bethany. The church is located between Sullivan and Bethany off Route 121 south toward Wilburn Creek.Singing will be State of Grace. Food and baked goods will be offered for sale
