Arms Around the Anhalts fundraising event this weekend

Posted: Updated:
WAUNAKEE (WKOW) -- A Waunakee teen inspired her community to help her fight a serious disease, but now her mom has an inoperable brain tumor. So once again, the community is showing their support for this family, by hosting a fundraiser this weekend.

Arms Around the Anhalts is a benefit planned by friends and neighbors to support the Anhalt family.

Last year, the Waunakee community started the "Orange4Emily" campaign to help Emily Anhalt fight her kidney disease.

When Emily became seriously ill, her dad, Mike, had to give up his job to provide full time care. The family's sole income was provided by her mom, Cindy, who is a first-grade teacher.

But now Cindy has her own medical condition. She was recently diagnosed with brain cancer.

Arms Around the Anhalts is this Sunday, May 4 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at American Legion Post 360 in Waunakee.

Two of the event's organizers, Rebecca Dunai and Debbie Walker, joined us on 27 News at 5 on Tuesday.
