Easton Rood benefit

Family and friends of Easton Rood of Belgrade will hold a benefit for the three-year old who was stricken by cancer in the summer of 2019 and diagnosed in August at just 2 1/2 years old. The benefit will be held on Saturday, April 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the New London American Legion. Easton Rood was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, a rare liver cancer. After many chemotherapy treatments and tests at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, he was blessed to receive a liver transplant at St. Mary's/Mayo Hospital in Rochester on Dec. 27, 2019. Easton is the son of Casey and Nicole (Olson) Rood and has one brother, seven-year old Caleb. Because of the intense need to be in or near the hospitals, Casey and Nicole have had to dedicate 100 percent of their time to be by Easton's side in Minneapolis and Rochester for the past seven months. Meanwhile, Caleb has been staying with relatives to attend school at Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa. Please join the family for a fundraiser to help with medical expenses the family has incurred. Schedule on April 18: chicken/ham dinner 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (kids meals available), bake sale 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., silent auction 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., live auction at 3 p.m., benefit meat raffle at 4 p.m. (New London American Legion, license number A-00824-003) Outdoor activities for children will be held, weather-permitting.
