‘Marty’s Party’ on Saturday to benefit local woman battling leukemia

TILTON — A fundraiser to benefit a local woman who is battling leukemia will take place Saturday, Nov. 8, from noon to 3:30 p.m. at the outdoor track at Winnisquam Regional High School.

The event, called Marty's Party, is being held to benefit Martha Clark, who is battling Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). Organizers say the event will provide a time and place for friends, family, and the community to come support Martha and her battle with cancer.

Activities include games, raffles, prizes, face painting, lunch, drinks, treats, music and a silent auction with many wonderful items. Organizers hope the visible evidence of the support of her family, neighbors and community will enable Clark to continue this fight with renewed strength.

Clark has been fighting CLL for more than a year. So far, it has not responded to treatment, so she has begun treatment through a clinical trial at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. These treatments will likely continue through February 2015. By participating in the clinical trial, Clark is hoping to have a greater shot at beating the disease, and is also helping to find a cure for this type of leukemia. She has to travel to Boston for four out of seven days of the week. Benefit proceeds will help offset Clark's medical and travel bills.

Clark is the mother of three: son Josh, 24 and daughters Audrey, 22 and Elyssa, 19, and is a lifelong resident of the tri-town area. She and all of her children graduated from Winnisquam Regional High School. She has given most of her working life to supporting kids in need as the assistant director at Riverbend Children's Program.

For more information and/or to stay up to date on this event, "join" the Marty Party Facebook page. Donations may be sent to: 146 Cram Road, Sanbornton, NH 03269.
