A fish fry fundraiser for 12-year-old Odie Harris will take place Saturday at the Four Way Country Store in Haughton.
Harris, a student at Curtis Elementary, was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer earlier this month.
Gaye Myers, a close friend of the Harris family, says that the cancer has completely compromised his liver and has spread to his lungs.
The fundraiser will begin at 3 p.m. and will have a dunk tank, a raffle for various items and a fishplate meal. Myers said there is no time limit on this event and urges people to come out and support this great cause.
“Help us help him,” Myers said. “That’s all we’re asking.”
The Four Way Country Store is located at the corner of Highway 157 and Highway 527. Donation containers have also been placed around Haughton.
Myers added that all donations would go towards covering Harris’ medical expenses. If you would like more information about ways to make a donation, contact Myers at (318) 987-6867.
