COED SLOW PITCH SOFTBALL FUNDRAISER FOR BRITTANY MIRICK
Brittany Mirick graduated from Southern High School in 2009 and attended St. Catherine College on a softball scholarship until she became ill in August. Brittany who is 18 years old has recently been diagnosed with severe case of a rare blood disorder called Aplastic Anemia. She cannot be treated with a bone marrow transplant or chemotherapy, so the family is seeking other treatment options that are very expensive and may not be covered by health insurance. She recently spent 11 days in Kosair Children’s Hospital receiving 4 treatments at $30,000 per treatment and will continue taking a regimen of medications at home. In an effort to help the family with medical expenses we will be hosting:
The Brittany Mirick Softball Tournament
October 24th at the New Washington Youth League Ballpark in Hibernia, Indiana. The team entry fee is $150. Please make any checks payable to The Brittany Mirick Fund. If any questions, please contact Teresa Wiedemer at 502-594-0717 or Tim Sexton at 502-552-0034. You’re not required to be good, just willing to have fun, so get your teams together to help a young girl and her family in need! We look forward to seeing you there!!!
