Lisa (Parrish) Grimsled has PNH, Paratysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria, a rare blood disease that causes anemia, hemolysis, low blood counts and blood clots. Due to this disease, Lisa has not worked since November 2011 and has been told she may never work again. Her husband, Jan, is missing work to drive her to Rochester for health care every week. Her medical bills are overwhelming and will continue to grow.
Lisa’s hope revolves around a bone marrow transplant. However, 85% of people with this disease die from blood clots before they get receive the transplant.
The family, friends, and the Lasting Legends Car Club are hosting a benefit for Lisa on Saturday, December 8th at Retreat Sportsman’s Club in Retreat, WI starting at 2pm.
There will be a live auction at 4pm, along with a Chinese raffle, a bake sale, music and food.
