Brother Knight Tucker (Tom) & Mandy Diroff’s three-month old grandson, Elliott Belair, has been diagnosed with a very rare brain cancer.  He had surgery at four weeks old with 90% of the tumor being removed.  He is now undergoing chemotherapy, for approximately a year or longer.  This will be a very long and tumultuous fight for Elliott and his parents and while they do have insurance, there will be considerable costs incurred.

We will be holding a fundraiser for Tucker & Mandy’s daughter Natalie, son-in-law Adam and most importantly, baby Elliott on Friday, November 12, 2021 at 6pm in the Member Lounge and the Fr Saylor Room (Basement Hall).  The fundraiser will be a basket raffle, 50/50 raffle and a Euchre tournament.  We are asking for volunteers to donate baskets and the raffle will be held on Saturday, December 4th in the Member Lounge.  Entry cost for the Euchre tournament will be $25 per person with 80% of the proceeds going to the family and 20% to prize money.  There will be a sign-up sheet for Euchre in the Member Lounge.  If you would like to donate a basket or would like to help out with the event, please contact Vanessa Danilowicz at 313-574-6201, Joe Martinez at 313-808-0780, or Joe Carnarvon 313-819-5879.  Click on this link for more information. https://3774.knights.church/wp-content/uploads/sites/124/2021/10/Flyer-for-Elliott.pdf

If you would like to make a cash contribution, the family has also set up a GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-baby-elliott-fight-rare-atrt-brain-cancer?utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet&utm_medium=email&utm_source=customer

Any support is appreciated.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
