In the beginning of September, 2013, Dave Sutton Ist received the news that all families pray not to hear. He was diagnosed with stage 3 Squamous Lung Cancer that has metastasized to his lymph nodes. Dave will undergo intense Chemo therapy and radiation. In addition to these treatments, he will undergo surgery to remove his right lung and also his lymph nodes.
A few months ago, Dave had the honor of announcing to his friends and family his engagement to Bonnie Bennett. Unfortunately, their happiness was cut short by this horrific news. Bonnie, taking advantage of the Family Leave Act, has taken a leave of absence from work in order to be by his side.
Family, friends and loved ones will be holding a benefit on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at De Olde Towne Taverne in Bridgeton. Please come out and join us in the effort to make this benefit a success as the family is encountering mounting medical and household bills.
Several local bands, including Just Us (acoustic), Dale Bierman and Matt Pauley (acoustic), End November (acoustic), Nick At Night, Wise And Young, Punkabilly, Kids Don't Bounce and Wicked Ride have all donated their time. In addition to the bands, a Chinese Auction, 50/50, and door prizes will be featured at the benefit. There will also be a buffet from 2 PM-5 PM and Admission will be $20 at the door.
Dave has been there for MANY of us in our time of need. Now it is our turn to be there for him! Let's take this ONE time, this ONE day, this ONE opportunity to PAY IT FORWARD!!
