Eva Helm, the daughter of Matt and Brit Helm, was diagnosed with Diabetes insipidus (DI) caused by a brain tumor very close to the Pituitary Gland. Eva will be having brain surgery on October 1st to remove the tumor. Eva’s Father Matt Helm manages Green River Stone Company’s Kemmerer Quarry, and is an amazing friend to all of us in the fossil industry.
Eva has undergone surgery to remove the Brain Tumor, and heals from her ordeal as she and her family learn to cope with the Diabetic condition that the tumor caused. The family continues with ongoing follow up visits and medical expenses, and will likely do so for years to come. The Kemmerer Lions Club has begun to raise funds to help the family cover some of these ongoing expenses, allowing the family to focus less on finances and more on the recovery of young Eva.
Congratulations to Heidi Beachler, the winner of the Ice Auger. Thank you to all who purchased tickets to support this project. The Lions Club was able to contribute $3,000 toward medical expenses for Eva!
