McKenna family needs help with cancer treatments

Leslee A. Hendershot and friends of the McKenna family

As many of you already know, there is a recent Rifle High School graduate who is in stage four of cancer. His name is Bryan McKenna. Bryan has just finished undergoing stem cell harvesting for his upcoming transplant. Bryan is scheduled to undergo extensive chemotherapy in the coming weeks, and this will be his best chance for a full recovery.

Bryan’s family has been blessed with the help of this community in so many ways. At this point, on behalf of the McKenna family, we would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of those who have offered prayers, support and services for Bryan and his family.

As friends of the McKenna’s, many community members have approached us asking how they can help. During the last seven months, Bryan has undergone chemotherapy, radiation, and numerous medical tests. Due to the extensive therapy, most of the treatment is required to be done out of town. The costs involved are more than one family can handle. The Bryan McKenna Fund has been established at Wells Fargo Bank. Contributions to help the family during this challenging time can be made at any Wells Fargo Bank.

On behalf of the family, thank you for all of your love and support, and may God bless you and continue to watch over Bryan and the McKenna family.
