While many children spent their summer vacation enjoying the sun, swim and time off, times have not been as easy for 5th grader Kween Alabi. She was diagnosed with a 5" tumor on her spinal cord over the summer.
As Alabi tries to recover from surgery performed on September 7th, her classmates and the staff at her school, Prairie Wind Elementary, have been working to help her family stay in their home.
Kween's father is currently working to re-establish a medical practice in Togo, Africa and is not yet able to support the family, and her mother has had to take time off from her job to take care of her.
The Alabi's are receiving Medicaid help, but that isn't enough to cover the other bills. Kween has a sister and two brothers.
The school has organized a benefit dinner to be held on Thursday, September 27th, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Prairie Wind Elementary School, 10908 Ellison Ave.
The cost is $6 for food provided by "The Pizza Pie Guys." Everyone gets to make their own 7" pizza and their will be salad, soda or lemonade and a cookie.
There will also be a silent aucton.
