A benefit auction and concert featuring The Boom Chucka Boys, to raise money for a young Sylvan Lake woman, takes place at the Gospel Chapel on Sept. 29.

Mikeala Davidson, 18, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right leg in June 2012. She had surgery on her leg and went through nearly a year of chemotherapy. In May 2013, doctors found spots on her lungs and they operated in June to remove three tumours.

Her mother Pam Davidson said there may be more tumours and the only thing the doctors can do for her daughter in Canada is to remove the tumours.

The family is now pursuing a costly alternative treatment that does genetic testing on the tumours to determine what the chemotherapy can help, if any, in Arizona.

The fundraising event gets underway at 4:30 p.m. with a live and silent auction and beef on a bun. The concert starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 by donation per person.
