A Mansfield woman who's battling breast cancer needs your help.

A benefit is scheduled to raise money to cover her medical bills.

Chris Heichel has stage three breast cancer, which means it has spread into her lymph nodes.

She has undergone surgery at the James Cancer Center in Columbus, piling up $48,000 in bills, and still has eight weeks of chemotherapy and six weeks of radiation treatments for another quarter-million.

She has also a very poor health insurance policy which covers only a small fraction of her hospital bills.

Heichel's friend, Rosemary Ferrell, is organizing a spaghetti dinner benefit, March 9 from 4 to 10 p.m. at the Moose Lodge at 970 Lucas Road.

A minimum $10 donation is requested. 

It will include two local easy listening and Top 40 cover bands, Drive-By Tuesday and Signature, karaoke, a D-J, a 50/50 drawing, and an auction of items donated by area businesses.

Heichel says money raised for her treatments will not be in vain.  She's going to beat the cancer.
