How you can help save young woman's life

MARYVALE residents are rallying behind one of their own, organising a fundraising auction for their friend and neighbour Tracey Young.

Ms Young has been battling Atypical hemolytic-uremis syndrome (aHUS) for the past three years.

One of her life-saving treatments, a drug called Soliris, costs $500,000 a year.

To help with her growing medical costs, a group of Maryvale residents are holding a fundraising auction next weekend.

Ms Young's mother Lee is encouraging residents and businesses to donate to the auction.

"We are trying to make this fundraiser big," she said.

"We would also like a singer or band to donate their time to sing at this event."

The auction will be held on Saturday, June 4 from 10am at the Maryvale Crown Hotel.

There will also be a pig on the spit lunch available for $15 per person.

For more information, bookings, or to make a donation, phone Dennis at the Crown Hotel on 46661148 or Lee Young on 0455285202.

Donations can be dropped off at the Crown Hotel, Bestbrook Mountain Resort or Brodrick Transport Warwick.
