Fundraiser planned for Rapids family
Ashley Groholski fighting bone cancer
For City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – A fundraiser is planned for May 27 for a Wisconsin Rapids woman undergoing treatment for a rare type of cancer.
Ashley Groholski was diagnosed last fall with mandibular osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer. A benefit will take place starting at 11 a.m., Saturday, May 27 at the Fallback. The event will include live music all day, featuring Double Threat; raffle baskets, cash raffles, food, drinks and activities for kids.
About a year ago Groholski began feeling pain in her lower jaw and teeth, which led to removal of a tumor by an oral surgeon. Weeks later that tumor was diagnosed as a rapidly growing osteosarcoma. She has been undergoing chemotherapy at the Carbone Cancer Center at UW-Madison, keeping her away from her husband Cody and young daughter Remy.
“In addition to the emotional stress and physical pain, there is the financial stress – household and medical bills are mounting,” according to benefit organizers. “To help ease some of that burden, in addition to the GoFundMe page, a benefit to support Groholski and her family is set to kick off at 11 a.m. May 27, at The Fallback, located at 9031 County Road, Wisconsin Rapids.”
