Fundraiser To Be Held For Leukemia Patient

Several members of the community are rallying to support a Lincoln man who's been struck with Leukemia. Mike Fayman loves to spend time with his family.

Now that time has become extra precious, less than a month and a half ago, Mike was going about his business as an independent contractor when he didn't feel right and went to see a doctor. He was diagnosed with an acute form of leukemia.

It's hard for Mike, who is now 56-years old, to talk about it, but he lost a brother to Leukemia at age 22. He says being exposed to certain chemicals in his line of work may also be acomplicating factor in his case. Medical expenses are causing quite a strain, so several members of his church and others have organized some fund-raising efforts. They're collecting donations, and staging a benefit concert Sunday, June 25th with several local musical groups scheduled to perform.

Donations can be made to the Michael Fayman benefit fund at any Tier One Bank. Old cellphones and inkjet cartridges are also being collected at various locations around town to recycle for cash.

The June 25th Michael Fayman benefit concert will be held from noon until 5 p.m. At Crescent Moon Coffee, 816 “p” street in the Haymarket.
