8-Month-Old Evelynn Fighting Kleefstra Syndrome, Benefit to be Held


Eight-month-old Evelynn Hazlett has a rare chromosomal abnormality called Kleefstra Syndrome and a benefit is planned for Feb. 17 to help with medical expenses.

The sloppy-joe feed is being held at the Funk School community building on Feb. 17 from 4-8 p.m.

A raffle and silent auction will be held and donations are also being accepted at the Great Western Bank in Holdrege.

Kleefstra syndrome is a rare genetic condition inwhich a tiny piece is missing from near the end of one of the body's 46chromosomes. The disorder leads to abnormal development in many areas for most babies.
