(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS Cancer Kids First club is starting a fundraiser Monday, May 8.

The fundraiser is dedicated to contributing to eight-year-old Petra Chop’s medical bills.

Chop is a local girl fighting  Ewings Sarcoma, a rare cancer that occurs in bones and soft tissues, often affecting the pelvis, legs, and spine.  The club hopes to raise money to help cover family transportation costs, hotel stays, meals, and anything else the Chops may need during these tough times.
