Amy Kahler benefit Aug. 23

A benefit for Amy Kahler of River Falls will be held on Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Glenwood Fire Station. There will be a 5K and family fun run. Registration starts at 8 a.m. with the 5K starting at 9 a.m. and the family run at 10 a.m. Other fundraiser events from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. include: a raffle, silent auction, kids’ activities, food, drinks, music and more.

In 2010, Kahler was diagnosed with breast cancer which led to chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and radiation. Despite preventative efforts, the breast cancer spread to her hip bone meaning additional radiation and medication treatment. In March, Kahler underwent emergency surgery to remove a metastatic brain tumor which resulted in a severe hemorrhage.  After five weeks of hospitalization, Amy was discharged from Regions Hospital and continues to receive rehabilitation therapy and treatment from home.
