Benefits planned for local man with cancer

F riend and family members of Granville resident John Groesbeck are seeking financial help for the 46-year-old self-employed man, who discovered less than two months ago that he has a form of brain cancer.

There is a basket party scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Castleton, Vt., American Legion post. Viewing will begin at 11:30 a.m., and bidding will begin at 1 p.m.

Monetary donations and donations of baskets or other items are being solicited. Please call Pam Groesbeck, 802 671-8054, Stella Rathbun at 796-4356 or Annette Minnie at 744-0274.

The focus of the fundraising is to pay insurance and other costs.

Groesbeck, who owns On The Level Construction and Still Wild Taxidermy, had to be taken to Rutland Region Medical Center, where he was diagnosed with “glioblastoma,” according to family members,

He was very ill, then recovered enough to have surgery at Albany Medical Center. He and his wife, Tuesday, spent their 25th wedding anniversary at the hospital.

He is back home and traveling to Glens Falls Hospital five days a week for treatment.

A note from the family members organizing the basket party said, “John remains very optimistic and says he will beat this. He is the inspiration that keeps us strong.”

 

Benefit archery shoot

Hilltop Archery, Russell Lane in Argyle, will hold a 3D archery shoot that will benefit Groesbeck from 8 a.m. to noon, Sunday, Sept. 23.

The event is by donation and classes will include men’s and women’s open, men’s and women’s hunter, youth (13-17) and youth (12-and-under).

Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the club.

For more information, call Ken at 642-3679 or 222-9620 or by email at [email protected] .
