Three-year-old Anthonio Chisolm was recently diagnosed with Glioma — a rare, aggressive and inoperable form of brain cancer.
“This is a family very near and dear to our community that is facing some of the hardest times imaginable,” said family friend Shannon Keeling. Anthony and his mother, London, live in Cottageville, but are having to travel to the Medical University of S.C. in Charleston every day — Monday-Friday — for Anthony’s radiation treatments. “The family is in need of many things at this time, such as a vehicle to get back and forth,” Keeling said.
So the community is pulling together to help the family. A benefit dinner will be held March 5 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. in the lot beside the former Cottageville Motors on main street in Cottageville. The menu includes pulled pork, grilled leg quarters, macaroni and cheese, rice, green beans, canned sodas and dessert for $10/plate. Other items will also be sold.
“We are seeking donations of food to cook for fundraising, as well as cash donations to give directly to the family,” Keeling said. All donations from the March 5 event will go directly to the family.
For information or to help, call Keeling, 843-560-2597, or Ginni Mitchell, 843-217-3270.
But “above all, keep this little boy and his family in your prayers,” Keeling said.
