SHELBYVILLE, IL — The Shelbyville Lions Club will hold its annual spaghetti dinner on Tuesday, March 10 from 5-7 p.m. at the Lions Community Building in Forest Park.
Once again this year’s proceeds will benefit the HSHS Good Shepherd Foundation Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund.
The HSHS Good Shepherd Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund was set up to help individuals who live or work in Shelby County that have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The fund helps those who are actively seeking treatment with their out-of-pocket expenses. These expenses may include, but are not limited to child care, travel, meals, wigs, mileage and parking.
Each applicant is considered on a case-by-case basis. To apply for assistance from the HSHS Good Shepherd Foundation Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund, please call the HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital financial counselor’s office at (217) 774-3961, extension 2460 for an appointment.
“Our hospital’s foundation began this fund in 2011, and we have helped several people since its inception,” said Lorrie Hayden, co-mission leader at Good Shepherd. “It is with the generous donations of individuals and organizations such as the Lions that we can support those who need it.
We are extremely grateful to have their support, and I thank them for making our fund a priority.”
