|Fundraiser slated for Lisa Collodi July 26
Love for Lisa, an organization designed to raise funds to help two-time cancer survivor Lisa Collodi offset soaring medical costs, will host a day brunch, Bunco and shopping on Saturday, July 26, at the Flamingo Resort and Hotel in Santa Rosa.
There also will be a vendor-supplied raffle. The event runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and all proceeds will go to help Collodi, who recently underwent heart surgery. Collodi is a personal trainer for Powerfit Personal Training in Rohnert Park. The Bunco tournament begins at noon.
Recently, it was discovered that an existing congenital issue with the aortic valve of her heart had been exacerbated from radiation therapy during her last bout with cancer. The valve has to be replaced, but in order to proceed, she needs dental work to repair the damage inflicted upon her by the radiation treatments.
