Friends lend hand to mother battling ALS

Fundraiser Saturday at Sawbucks Pub to benefit Cindy Hamelin and her family.

Friends of a South Surrey mother-of-five who was recently diagnosed with ALS are hosting a fundraiser Saturday to help with her battle.

Cindy Hamelin, who received the “horrific” terminal diagnosis Nov. 13, is trying to raise $7,000 for a stem-cell transplant in the U.S. in an effort to slow down symptoms of the progressive neuromuscular disease.

Saturday’s fundraiser takes place at Sawbuck’s Pub (1626 152 St.) starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and include a burger and beer, and there will be a ‘toonie toss’, 50/50 draw and a silent auction for a number of items, including a Travis Vagner print.
